Martin Mosebach to speak in New York City

The prize-winning German novelist, film-maker, and writer on liturgy, Martin Mosebach, will be speaking in New York City on Sunday the 30th of January, following a Solemn Mass at 5 P.M. at the Church of Our Saviour at 59 Park Avenue (at 38th Street). His lecture will be in the undercroft at 7 P.M. The subject of the talk will be “The Old Roman Missal: Loss and Rediscovery.”

According to Fr. John Zuhlsdorf's post (January 7, 2011), Mass will be celebrated in the “Extraordinary Form” with music provided by the St. Mary’s (Norwalk, CT) Schola Cantorum: Palestrina’s Missa sine nomine, motets by Palestrina and Victoria, and all the proper Gregorian chants. David Hughes directs the Schola.

Martin Mosebach is author of the celebrated volume, The Heresy of Formlessness: The Roman Liturgy and Its Enemy (San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 2006), published with a Foreword by Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J.
