The Novus Ordo in Latin is what I'm most familiar with, and is the Mass I sing chant in most often, since chant is in demand every Sunday and on certain holy days. The local diocesan Tridentine community only allows for chant once in a while.

I wasn't aware that it had been declining quite that far into obscurity. However, there doesn't seem to be any demand at my parish to switch from the Novus Ordo in Latin to a Tridentine Mass. Perhaps because to the non-liturgically savvy observer, it seems identical.

Why have a Latin NO that appears identical to the TLM? Why not just offer the TLM? Is it a rule that chant is only allowed once in a while at a TLM? Or is that just in your diocese?
