It should be borne in mind that there is no preference expressed in the liturgical legislation for either “versus populum” or “ad orientem.” Since both positions enjoy the favor of law, the legislation may not be invoked to say that one position or the other accords more closely with the mind of the Church.

Spectacular Video: Porfiri Conducts Requiem For Parents In China
published 16 September 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

SENSATIONAL INTERVIEW IN ENGLISH & ITALIAN by Teledifusão de Macau on Aurelio Porfiri’s concert with Santa Rosa de Lima English Secondary Choir (21 February 2014) featuring Porfiri’s Missa Pro Defunctis in honor of his parents:


A small excerpt from the video (comments by Mæstro Porfiri):

“As you notice, they sing the whole concert, seventeen pieces, all by memory. And you can imagine … I mean, I know Latin but they don’t know it. So, for them to memorize all these pieces—and also the music in four & six parts—is quite difficult. They are really amazing.”
