Plainsong at Leeds Cathedral

When churches were closed due to COVID 19, Leeds Cathedral lost no time in livestreaming a daily Mass.  Regrettably, no Latin Masses have been livestreamed, but Latin plainchant has been included in the Sunday Novus Ordo Messes.  I have just heard from a source within the Leeds Curia that this has been extremely well received by viewers, with many favourable comments.

I am told that, although Leeds Cathedral would like to livestreram their Sunday Latin Mass, they cannot do so because they only have one person to deal with the technical aspects.  However, we must be grateful that viewers are being introduced to plainsong.  For many people, it could be the thing that leads them to the Latin Mass.

I think "Novus Ordo Messes" is a tad harsh.

That was an unintentional error, although somewhat amusing.
