A new Missal translation is on its way.
New music in English and Latin is available as never before.
The older Missal of the extraordinary is in early stages of living alongside the modern Missal of the ordinary form.

The assembled choir will rehearse and sing the full ʺLauda Sionʺ chant, along with newly published English chants.

Jeffrey Tucker (New Liturgical Movement, Sacred Music, and author of Sing Like a
