MADISON, WI – 2 November 2017 – All Souls: Pontifical Requiem at the Throne @MadisonDiocese

On 2 November, All Soul’s Day Bishop Robert Morlino of the Diocese of Madison will celebrate a special Pontifical Requiem Mass at the Throne (Extraordinary Form).

This annual Requiem Mass is celebrated for the deceased clergy of the diocese.

The Requiem Mass will take place on Thursday, 2 November, at 7 pm in the chapel of Holy Name Heights (formerly Bishop O’Connor Catholic Center).

Clergy and seminarians are encouraged to attend and participate “in choro” with choir dress (cassock, surplice, biretta).

All are warmly welcome to attend the Holy Mass.

The music for the Mass, under the direction of Mr. Aristotle Esguerra, will be Gregorian Chant and Tomás Luis de Victoria’s (+1611) Requiem for 4 Voices.

The Mass is sponsored by the Tridentine Mass Society of Madison.

Hopefully by next year we will have a new black set of vestments.

Please contribute!

    Although Victoria’s Requiem for 4 Voices has been done the past several years for this mass, this year we will be singing the Requiem Mass setting by Paolo Isnardi: Missa pro defunctis for four voices, which has never been sung before on this continent.

    “All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in that place” is what I gather you’re saying.

    [Sure. However, I don’t understand your desire to mock what we are trying to do: pray for deceased priests.]
