Ladie Mass on Saturday, January 15

The Brothers had a wonderful way to start the new year: they met at St. John's the Evangelist for a Mass in honor of Our Lady. Fr. Neely celebrated at the side altar, which is rarely used these days.
A group shot at the shrine altar:

John, Rich, and special guest Matt sang the Mass for Three Voices by William Byrd, which beautifully complemented the Gregorian chants of the propers. Here you can hear two movements:

gloria mass 3 voices byrd
agnus mass 3 voices byrd
