Quote from: Justin Martyr on April 04, 2022, 09:47:31 PMIs it possible to make it where we can select two? I alternate each sunday between the Mass of St. Paul VI and a Missa Cantata of the Mass of St. Pius V (the latter is only available bi-weekly and is the only TLM within 100 miles), so I equally attend two of the options.
QuoteClassificationThe Baltimore Ceremonial thus classified the Missa cantata as a High Mass. The early 20th-century Catholic Encyclopedia said, on the contrary, that a Missa cantata "is really a low Mass, since the essence of high Mass is not the music but the deacon and subdeacon. Only in churches which have no ordained person except one priest, and in which high Mass is thus impossible, is it allowed to celebrate the Mass (on Sundays and feasts) with most of the adornment borrowed from high Mass, with singing and (generally) with incense."In 1960, Pope John XXIII's Code of Rubrics distinguished the Missa cantata both from a high Mass and from low Mass. Under the number 271, it defined the forms of Mass as follows: Masses are of two kinds: sung Masses (in cantu) and low Masses (Missa lecta). A Mass is called a sung Mass, when the celebrant actually sings those parts which the rubrics require to be sung; otherwise it is called a low Mass. Moreover, a sung Mass, when celebrated with the assistance of sacred ministers, is called a solemn or High Mass (Missa solemnis); when celebrated without sacred ministers, it is called a Missa cantata.

Quote from: mikemac on April 05, 2022, 05:35:55 PMI was born in 1952 so it was the Latin Mass then. I just remember the Low Mass and the High Mass from back then. The High Mass was always at 11:00 am at the cathedral. I don't remember the Mass being call a sung Mass or a Missa cantata back then. Only since I got access to the Latin Mass about 15 years ago have I heard the term Missa cantata. We used to have a Missa cantata for quite a while but the schola members moved out of the area.
Quote from: Kaesekopf on April 13, 2022, 09:11:47 AMMy ICKSP oratory offers Missa cantatas and lectas on Sundays and holy days. When they can get the clerics, they'll offer the solemnis (generally for "bigger" feast days). We had a streak of monthly solemnis Masses, but COVID came, and one of the diocesans got re-assigned to a busier assignment. But, the oratory keeps growing, the diocesan priests get friendly, and we get more solemnis out of it, so, I figure it's a win either way.
