The Mobile newspaper did an hour-long interview yesterday with an organizer of the below mass in Mobile, with Thomas Harrison of the Mobile Press-Register.  The Newspaper also interviewed Fr. Martin, and its going to interview several singers.  It is to be a big feature article, with photos, in the arts section on July 23.  Watch for it; it will be on the Press-Register web-site.  They're also sending a photo to the Requiem itself for follow-up photos to be published after the event. This should lead to a large crowd. Hopefully this large crowd will lead to the formation of a latin mass group that can carry on the momentum of a return to tradition in the Diocese.

Info on the Mass:
On Friday July 29th at 7:30 pm there will be a historic Latin Mass in the Mobile Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Father Martin, the new Cathedral Rector and new Vicar General of the Archdiocese has agreed to celebrate a Requiem Mass for the deceased singers & benefactors of the Musica Sacra choir and Chamber Orchestra. The setting that Musica Sacra will sing, of the ordinary, is that of Maurice Durufle, late titular organist of St. Etienne du Mont in Paris. The propers will mostly be Gregorian, with the Tract a setting for female voices in harmony.
