Requiem for Queen Elizabeth this Saturday in London

A Traditional Latin Requiem Mass will be held in London this Saturday in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to mark a month since the death of the monarch.

The Sung Mass organized by the Latin Mass Society will be held at 11am at St Mary Moorfields church in the City of London. It will feature music by Tomas Luis da Victoria sung by the Southwell Consort directed by Gareth Wilson with the unusual accompaniment of Sackbutts and Cornetts.

Nearest tube stations Moorgate and Liverpool Street.

Joseph Shaw, Chairman of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales said

 “Under the law of the Church, we can offer for the repose of the soul of the late Queen, as a baptized Christian, not only private prayers but also public Requiem Masses. Although many have already been said for her, we are following the longstanding custom of celebrating one exactly a month after her death, and we will do so with the greatest possible solemnity.”

All are welcome to attend. For further information email: info@lms.org.uk
