First Mass Celebrated Coram Episcopo at St. Mary

Newly ordained Father Peter Lee celebrated his first Mass as a Solemn Mass at St. Mary of Pine Bluff on June 30 in the presence of his Excellency, Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino, bishop of the Diocese of Madison.

The Missa Coram Episcopo caught the attention of the New Liturgical Movement web site, which ran a feature story on July 6:

Music included the Veni Creator of Giammateo Asola, and his Missa secunda a 3 for the Ordinary, Byrd’s Sacerdotes Sancti and Palestrina’s Ego sum panis vitae as Communion motets, Gregorian propers, the solemn Te Deum, and “Hail, Holy Queen Enthroned Above” as the recessional.
