Rome – 22 Feb: Musical Rosary – UPDATED

Here is an announcement for people in Rome (edited and with my translation):

The Fraternity of St. Peter and the "Elsa Peretti" Foundation are happy to announce the third of their Rosary with musical settings events, to take place on Friday 22 February, at 7 pm, at the Church of San Salvatore in Lauro.

As on the previous two occasions, we will recite the Rosary in Latin, and after each mystery there will be a musical meditation, with voices and ancient instruments.  This will offer the wonderful opportunity to hear some of the best musicians in Rome performing sacred music in the setting for which it was written and not as a simple concert.  The event is free and open to the public.  

Members of the clergy and seminarians who desire to participate are asked to dress in choir dress proper to their order, to bring their own surplice, and to arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of time so we can arrange the procession.

 

UPDATE: 

Here is the program at the website of the FSSP in Rome (go visit them and give their stats a nice spike!):

    This would make a splendid CD or DVD. Is there such a thing already available?

  2. Lorenzo says:

    This is the third event in a series. The CD is still in the works — please be patient. In Italy, things tend to move a bit more slowly than one would like at times, especially when it comes to something this nice. So, say a prayer that everything goes smoothly!
