            Preceded at 1 pm with a program of traditional Christmas music.

 

The traditional Latin Mass of Christmas will be offered at Holy Ghost Church (Knoxville) at 1:30 pm on Christmas Day. At 1 pm preceding the Mass, the Knoxville Latin Mass Schola will present a program of traditional Christmas music. The Mass itself will be accompanied by the variable proper parts of the Mass and the fixed ordinary parts (Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Dei) sung in the Gregorian chants of Christmas, plus offertory and communion motets in sacred polyphony composed by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria.

 

Campion Missal users: Those owning personal copies of the St. Edmund Campion Missal are invited to bring them to this Christmas Mass. This will free the limited church supply for use by visitors.

 

MIDNIGHT MASS OF CHRISTMAS

12 am, December 25, 2014

St. Francis of Assisi Church, Townsend

 

CHRISTMAS MASS IN CHATTANOOGA

A Missa Cantata (sung high Mass) in the ancient form of the Roman Rite will be celebrated by Father David Carter at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul in Chattanooga on Christmas Day, December 25, 2014 at 2:30 p. m. Prelude music begins at 2:15 p. m. Music will be sung by adult and youth scholae cantorum. All are invited. A Missa Privata (low Mass) in the ancient form is now being offered by Fr. Carter every Monday morning at 7:00 am at Sts. Peter and Paul.

 

SOLEMN MASS IN THE EXTRAORDINARY FORM

Mass in the extraordinary form can be offered at three distinct levels of ceremony and solemnity. The "low Mass" is recited with little or no music. The "sung Mass" (missa canta) is chanted by a priest, usually with music and congregational singing. The "solemn Mass" is offered by a priest assisted by a deacon and subdeacon and a choir plus acolytes and torch bearers. All parts of a solemn Mass are chanted or sung, the actions of the ministers at the altar are elaborate, and the fragrance of incense combines with sight and sound to provide an enveloping atmosphere of reverence and worship. Our special Christmas celebration at Holy Ghost Church offers an opportunity to experience the Christmas liturgy of the Church in its most ancient form with solemn ceremony and sacred chant.
