From a reader:
On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the closing Mass of Musica Sacra-Florida’s Gregorian Chant workshop that was held in Ft. Lauderdale Friday and Saturday. The Mass was held at St. Michael the Archangel parish in Miami. It was a hybrid Novus Ordo Missa cantata. [Quite a mix of terms here. I take it that the "hybrid" part means both English and Latin, but that it was a Novus Ordo Mass with traditional outward elements, such as vestments.] The antiphons, readings and the common of the Mass (except for the Credo) were chanted in Latin by the schola (attendees of the workshop) and the celebrant chanted the other parts of Mass in English.
Elements of Summorum Pontificum could be noted thought this liturgy:
1. The priest wore a traditional Roman chasuble.
2. Benedictine arrangement of the altar
3. Ad orientem celebration
4. Latin chant of the antiphons
5. Dignified liturgy
6. Periods of silence
This was a magnificent liturgy. Unfortunately it was not advertised in the local Catholic media, I only found out about out through a post in The New Liturgical Movement (my second favorite web site…..after yours). I hope to be able to attend many more such liturgies, as you say “brick by brick.”
