Music for Rorate Masses - For the Ordinary Form!

This advent, join the church in the fantastic tradition of Rorate Masses. Typically they are celebrated in the Extraordinary Form, but don't forget that these beautiful candlelit Masses are not only for the Extraordinary Form but also can be celebrated in the Ordinary Form! By making use of the Votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin which is found in the new Roman Missal. Below you can find all the music needed to celebrate this Mass! I'd encourage you to consider asking your pastor to try one this Advent.
