Votive Masses

Masses for the Faithful Departed

The Order of the Requiem Mass contains an Ordo Missae with the peculiar features of the Requiem Mass, the music for the Ordinary, and the texts of the Proper Chants, which are the same in all Masses for the dead.

Therefore, the files with the Propers contain only the Collects and readings, and hence they are shorter than usual (two pages, again appearing twice in each file).

Because many of those attending a funeral will not be familiar with the Extraordinary Form, a series of files was produced that contain the complete texts of some Masses, with the texts from the Propers inserted at the right place of the Order of Mass. This was done for the Mass for departed priests, and for the Mass on the day of Burial (the latter comes in three different versions, one has alternative words for a man and a woman, the other two are for a man and for a woman respectively).
