What's your opinion on offering Mass in baroque vestments in a Gothic chapel?

You don't like Bach and Vivaldi?

Yes, but I like hyperbole more.

Oh, for the good old days! Wonder what happened to Catholic777 and if Robb is happy as a schismatic?

I don't like baroque church art. The altars moved away from traditional forms, the rood screens disappeared, ...

I do like the renaissance art of the Low Countries:

But probably mostly because these painter are also said to be late Gothic.

But they don't fit.

Really? Why not? I think the rectangular form of the Roman chasuble fits perfectly with all the straight crossbeams, and its embroidery complements the branch-like capitals. It's really awesome... let's not be fashion designers and get all picky. I think these are beautiful together!

The 'Roman' chasuble is so stiff and small, it does not resemble any of the previous forms anymore. It reminds me more of a scapular.

Thanks! I'm not sure my son, Charles Albert Mary, appreciates me tho'! When he got his first SocSec card he had his full name listed and now he's stuck with using it the rest of his life! :laughing:

For what it's worth.. Baroque all the way for me.  The Goths can keep their ponchos.

THIS!

I like Gothic cathedrals, though.  So, my opinion is that it's a mixture that works.

Most Romanesque churches were demolished.  :)

I've been to one in Cologne!  My German friend said that a lot of the baroque decorations and statuary that had accumulated over the years in older style churches fell down or got damaged during the WWII bombings, and people realized that the older churches looked a lot better without it.
