"Nothing should be allowed that is unworthy of divine worship, nothing that is obviously profane or unfit to express the inner, sacred power of prayer. Nothing odd or unusual is allowable, since such things, far from fostering devotion in the praying community, rather shock and upset it—and impede the proper and rightful cultivation of a devotion faithful to tradition."
— Pope Paul VI • 10/13/1966

1941 Mass (Chicago) mixed with 2017 Mass (FSSP)
published 8 May 2019 by Jeff Ostrowski

HE SACRED MUSIC SYMPOSIUM is approaching! If you are interested, keep an eye on this blog, because we have exciting information to release—and it’s coming within the next two weeks.

I don’t believe I ever released this “comparison” video:

It’s pretty cool.

It places footage from a 1941 Solemn Mass (Chicago) alongside footage from a 2017 Solemn Mass (Los Angeles).
