Last Thursday, November 22, Darío Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos sang Pontifical High Mass in the Tridentine rite at the Roman church of S. Ivo alla Sapienza. The music was fabulous and the church was packed with an overflowing crowd.
This Mass was the beginning event of the Roma Festival Barocco which is being held in Rome until December 1. The festival aims to bring Baroque music into its original setting of Baroque churches and palaces (www.romafestivalbarocco.it).
At the behest of the festival organizers the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter was invited to assist at the Mass.
