"In accord with no. 55 of the instruction of the Congregation of Rites on music in the liturgy (March 5, 1967), the Conference of Bishops has determined that vernacular texts set to music composed in earlier periods may be used in liturgical services even though they may not conform in all details with the legitimately approved versions of liturgical texts (November, 1967). This decision authorizes the use of choral and other music in English when the older text is not precisely the same as the official version."

1965 Video • Dedication of an Irish Cathedral
published 17 February 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

AM ALWAYS INTERESTED in old examples of film, as well as anything liturgical. You might enjoy seeing this 1965 dedication of a Cathedral in Ireland by Cardinal Richard Cushing, appointed legate of Pope Paul VI. His pronunciation of Latin toward the end is … not to be missed (more). By the way, during the Litany of the Saints, they chant Our Lady thrice, and the same for St. Nicholas.


The Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St Nicholas, commonly known as Galway Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Galway, Ireland, and is one of the largest and most impressive buildings in the city. Construction began in 1958 on the site of the old city jail, and in 1965 was finally dedicated by to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St. Nicholas.
