HIGH MASS OF THE ASCENSION

Recenttly we marked the Solemnity of the Ascension with High Mass in the Usus Antiquior. 
Here are a few pictures taken at the Mass. 
The choir sang Monteverdi's Mass for Four Voices.

Beautiful. A first for the Parish?

I hope Solemn Mass becomes a more regular occurrence, Father.

It was a first to have a High Mass, but we regularly have Sung Mass and Low Mass.
One of the major problems is finding the personnel - servers and clergy. THe other is vestments. THe ones we used for this Mass were on loan from clergy friends. It would be niced to have a High Mass set of our won, but they are so expensive.
Don't suppose you know any kind benefactors?
