When you consider that the greatest hymns ever written—the plainchant hymns—are pushing the age of eight hundred and that the noble chorale hymn tunes of Bach date from the early eighteenth century, then what is the significance of the word “old” applied to “Mother at Thy Feet Is Kneeling”? Most of the old St. Basil hymns date from the Victorian era, particularly the 1870s and 1880s.
— Paul Hume (1956)

Bishop Perry at Prince of Peace Catholic Church
published 30 December 2015 by Andrew Leung

CTL POP Gaudete Confirmation HIS MASS HAPPENED a few weeks ago but it was brought to my attention recently. Bishop Joseph Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, administered the Sacrament of Confirmation and celebrated a Pontifical Solemn High Mass at the Faldstool on Gaudete Sunday, Third Sunday of Advent. He was invited and assisted by Fr. Christopher Smith, who is the pastor of Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Taylors, SC, and a contributor on Chant Café.

When I was living in Georgia, I had the privilege to visit this parish a few times. They are known for their orthodoxy on the Church’s teachings, especially the teachings on the Liturgy and Sacred Music. Below are some pictures from the Mass and more can be viewed or purchase at this website.
