Corpus Christi Liturgical Splendour at St Mary Magdalen's


Rev. Dr Alcuin Reid (Deacon: left-wing), Fr Sean Finegan (Celebrant: centre-forward) and Fr Raymond Blake (Subdeacon: centre-back)

What do you call a Solemn Sung Mass with a Choir singing Byrd's Mass for Four Voices, interjected with Gregorian Chant, including a sequence composed by St Thomas Aquinas, adoration and procession of the Blessed Sacrament and three of the countries most revered priests celebrating the Tridentine Mass, with six altar servers in tow?

The answer? Corpus Christi at St Mary Magdalen's, last night. It was a stunner.

Click here for more pictures. Hopefully I will obtain a copy of Rev. Dr Alcuin Reid's homily which was very good indeed. The Altar was so beautifully decorated with flowers and as you can see, the Sacred Vestments looked sublime.
