Card. Brandmueller wound up being celebrant for the Pontifical Mass at the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter’s Basilica. Card. Canizares should have been the celebrant, but he had by accidentally scheduled a flight, apparently because he had been under the impression that this was going to be a Low Mass. Things happen. They had a couple Cardinals to spare, however.
Cards. Levada, Bartolucci were there, and one other Cardinal of Holy Roman Church.
The place was jammed, I hear.
I am sure there will be a torrent of photographic eye-candy. The variety of choir dress should be interesting.
The ever-present and diligent John Sonnen of Orbis Catholics has video and photos.
His video is on Youtube.
Sounds as if they used Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli, nisi fallor.
A photo or two… but go to his site.
Here is something you don’t see very often… a Cardinal directing a choir.
A little more video:
