The Latin Schola

Here's a picture of the members of our Latin Schola, with Deacon Orr and myself). We'd just finished celebrating a Requiem Mass for the repose of the soul of Joseph Baca, stepfather of James Griffin (first on the left). The director is Mr. Edmund Murray (second from the right). The schola regularly sings at the Sunday evening Latin Mass (Ordinary Form).

The Mass was offered in the Chapel of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, using the Anglican Use liturgy, with the schola chanting the minor propers in Latin, including the very beautiful Dies irae.
