You report: Day of tradition in the Washington, D.C. area
Rorate already announced traditional Latin vespers and Benediction with two Diocese of Arlington priests and an all-male choir this coming Laetare Sunday here. Earlier that day, 15 minutes north, there will be a traditional Latin Missa Cantata offered by Monsignor Andrew Wadsworth (the outstanding English priest designated by Pope Benedict XVI as executive director of ICEL). Monsignor Wadsworth's old choir -- the Byron Consort of Harrow School -- will sing. The Mass will be at the regular Sunday time of 9 a.m. at Saint Mary, Mother of God church at 5th and H streets, NW, in Washington, D.C., with coffee/doughnuts to follow in the parish hall. Rarely do Americans get to hear boys choirs anymore, and even more rarely do we get to hear a boys choir singing polyphony at a traditional Latin Mass -- something to certainly please Pope Saint Pius X.
