A Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form in Louisville...


August 15, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, will see the first Solemn High Mass to take place in Louisville in quite a number of years. Yours truly, along with two other archdiocesan clerics, will be serving as celebrant, deacon, and subdeacon, respectively. I have served as both M.C. and subdeacon before, and am familiar with the Solemn High, so am comfortable with it. I need to help the other two (deacon and subdeacon), as well as the other ministers (thurifer, acolytes, M.C., etc...) to learn their parts, however. Knowing that many of you who frequent this blog are well versed in the Extraordinary Form, I have a question: is anyone out there familiar with any helpful resources they could recommend that could be used by those learning the Solemn High (and the Extraordinary Form in general) for the first time? I'm familiar with the Fortescue and O'Connor books on rubrics, and find them helpful. What I'm looking for is perhaps any audio-visual resources (maybe even posted on the web), or any resources you may have used in teaching/learning the Solemn High/E.F. Any help would be appreciated. And if you are in the area on the 15th, join us for what will be the first Solemn High in years in our area at St. Martin's.
