From a reader:
Dear Fr. Z,
Here’s an email we received at Ave Maria University:
"Dear AMU Community,
The AMU Chamber Choir will sing a Missa Cantata tomorrow at 12:30pm in the Oratory.
In Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, tomorrow is the feast of Christ the King, instituted in 1925 by Pope Pius XI with the encyclical Quas Primas. In the calendar of the Extraordinary Use, the feast of Christ’s Kingship occurs in proximity to that of His holy court, All Saints.
Music will include:
• Missa Brevis by 16th-century Italian composer, G. da Palestrina
• Coenantibus autem illis by 17th-century indigenous Mexican composer Juan de Lienas
• Gregorian propers of the feast
Vivat Christus Rex."
