Cappella Papale in the Sistine Chapel - Apostolic Liturgy par excellence

« On appelle CHAPELLES PAPALES, les vêpres, les matines, les messes chantées, et les autres cérémonies ecclésiastiques auxquelles assiste le Pontife souverain, ou qu’il célèbre lui-même, d’après les vénérables rites de l’Église romaine, en présence des Cardinaux, Patriarches, Archevêques et Prélats, du plus grand nombre des Généraux d’ordres religieux, des premiers dignitaires de la cour papale, et de la Famille pontificale »

C. Moroni, Histoire des chapelles papales, Paris 1846, p. 1

    "PAPAL CHAPELS is the name given to Vespers, Matins, sung Masses and other church ceremonies that are either attended by the Sovereign Pontiff, or that he celebrates himself according to the venerable rites of the Roman Church in the presence Cardinals, Patriarchs, Archbishops and Prelates, the great number of Generals of religious orders, the first dignitaries of the papal court, and of the Pontifical Family."
