Some forty souls attended, a small number in Cathedral terms but very large when compared with how things were five years ago before Summorum Pontificum.
Then we would have been fortunate to have five in the congregation.
In another five years, I hope that we will have 100 plus attending Mass and fulfilling their obligation on this great feast.
The following clip is Byrd's Agnus Dei from last night's Mass.
It is pleading and plaintive:
"Have mercy on us O Lord and speed support for the Holy Father in restoring tradition to our liturgy and Faith"
