Chant Is Not Just for Albums Any More

We note that the music for Midnight Mass at St Peter's (the Vatican) will be Gregorian Chant (Mass IX, Cum Jubilo).

Further, Matins will and the Kalendia chant will be sung before the Mass and the proper Introit will be chanted (and the proper Communio).

This is what Vatican II's document on the liturgy (SC) meant by "noble simplicity."

I watched this on the Vatican's online broadcast channel. It was wonderful to hear the Luke reading sung in Latin.
