At our “mother parish” (I normally go to a mission church), we had a Requium Mass last night according to the Missal of Bl. John XXIII (missa cantata).
It was wonderful, and I think it was our pastor’s first TLM said in the presence of the faithful. About 300 people were present and the choir was very good.
Our pastor had black vestments (a black fiddleback), with biretta, maniple...the whole works!

Awesome! Thank you for sharing this event with us. It seems the Motu Proprio is beginning to ‘hatch’ :-)

Sounds like "home"! Are you going to have TLMs steadily now?
NYer, thanks for the ping!

I particularly love the text of the Dies Irae, such a pity it's been taken out with the new Mass - yet another reason to love the T.L.M.
