At the Council of Trent, the subject was raised whether it was correct to refer to the unconsecrated elements of bread and wine as “immaculata hostia” (spotless victim) and “calix salutaris” (chalice of salvation) in the offertory prayers. Likewise the legitimacy of the making the sign of the cross over the elements after the Eucharistic consecration was discussed.

Brief Recording • Newest Choir In Los Angeles
published 11 March 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

175 Traditional Latin Mass IMAGE UR LORD AND SAVIOR, Jesus Christ, has been good to us here in Los Angeles. We have been able to establish a choir, even though our FSSP parish is still in its infancy.

Would you like to hear a short audio exerpt? Please tell your ears to be “merciful” because a cappella singing is extremely difficult—although it sounds easy!

    * *  PALESTRINA “Kyrie” (Chant & Polyphony)

We’ve been singing that polyphonic Kyrie Eleison for a few weeks.

If you know anyone in the Los Angeles area desirous of learning Gregorian chant & Renaissance polyphony, please have them contact me.  Thanks so much!
