Singing Out in Praise at Abbey Mass in Stirling

A Sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite was celebrated last week in the bell tower of the mediaeval Cambuskenneth Abbey in Stirling.

The Mass was celebrated by Fr John Emerson FSSP from Edinburgh, and was only the second Mass to be celebrated in the Abbey since the Reformation, the first having been celebrated by Fr Emerson last year.

The Schola of Una Voce Scotland sang the Plainchant Mass of Our Lady, and Mass ended with the Salve Regina. Mgr Hugh Boyle from Our Holy Redeemer's, Clydebank, presided over the Choir.

Fr Emerson celebrated a Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite on the first Sunday of the month in the Church of the Holy Spirit in Stirling at 5.00pm.
