Dialogue Mass: What's the point?
#39
First we will have to disagree on the Missa Cantata being a High Mass. I rely on the St. Andrew Missal because I proof read the Masses on Divinum Officium from the Sarum to the actual Trent Mass to the versions in 1910, 1911, 1955, and 1962, and relied on it for accurate information .

So, I went and double checked my Missal and the rubrics are "At sung Masses the Benedictus is sung after the Elevation.. Mea Culpa that means both the Cantata and the High Mass, thus it does not determine which Mass it is.

Calling a Missa Cantata a High Mass is no different than  before Vatican II when we'd omit Solemn in the Name. It actually is of little importance except for those which need the actual information of the rubrics and that is out of the purview of laymen.

In fact Mass was always referred to as Mass without descriptor. If there is a Miracle and the 80 million Catholics return to Sunday Mass attendance I strongly believe we will return to that. With many of the big beautiful Churches gone, which could hold lots of people, we'll need a minimum of a dozen Masses on Sundays in every Church. And that means Low Masses on the half hour, again.
