Were I the other side of the pond...

... I'd love to attend the Solemn Mass organized by our Whapster brethren. It's encouraging that they're receiving so much interest from the clergy. Incidentally, one could do worse than give this CD to any serious-minded cleric who'd like to learn how to say or sing the Mass in Latin, but didn't know how to get started. There is a slight English accent (far from as extreme as the plummy Latin of the London Oratory) on some of the Latin, but so far as I can tell, the pronunciation is excellent. Incidentally, despite the efforts of successive Pontiffs, in Rome there still survive very distinctive Spanish and German Latin accents.
