Quote:All Masses in St Peter’s basilica will have to be New Rite concelebrations "animated" by "readers" and "singers."

This is consistent with Orthodox liturgy. In Orthodoxy, a priest may not celebrate liturgy by himself. There must be at least one singer.

But in Catholicism, priests have, for centuries, offered a mass by themselves--or anyone nearby could kneel if they wanted--as part of the morning prayer routine. I don't know how true this is but: it seems to me that one reason priests do it today is that it's a way to have a more beautiful prayer routine in the morning. If I were a priest I would surely do my morning mass in the older rite, because it's just so much more beautiful and thorough.
