Fantastically beautiful!

I sent this to my protestant relatives.

What separates protestant heresy from Catholic orthodoxy, often methinks, is beauty!

Whereas the first is mostly filled with banality, the latter is filled with great art and beauty.

It doesn't take a great art expert to see how mundane and banal the Novus Ordo is, art-wise, and how inspiring to art the the Traditional Latin Mass is!

Surely the most magnificent of Roman chants!
Thank you, NC, and happy new year to all at Rorate.

This will be done at the Shrine of Christ the King in Chicago at 5 PM, along with Vespers and Benediction in the traditional form.

Te Deum is one of the sublimest and oldest chants.

Can an Oratory be a blessed private chapel?

The words are Heavenly! Thank you.

Blessings to Rorate in the Year of Our Lord 2012!

Thank you New Catholic for letting us know. We went to our NO parish early before mass and read the Te Deum, in Latin, in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary. We hope it counts.

Thank you Rorate for another year works for the Church and the Latin Mass. A Happy New Year to all your team, your 16 priests, and your devoted readership.

Te Deum

I will chant it at any time - it must have special graces.
