Requiem Mass of Margaret Hughes

On the 29th of October 2022, Cantores Matris Dei sang our first engagement with our new line up, a Requiem Mass for a Mrs Hughes of Coatbridge. It is always a solemn privilege to sing the sacred liturgy, particularly when the intention is so focussed on aiding an individual on their way to God. Parish Priest, Fr Denney offered his first Requiem Mass in the Extraordinary Form with recollected intent and his homily spoke of the depth of the prayers which hasten this faithful soul to her rest. Here is a recording of the Tract from the stunning prayers of the Requiem Mass. Please offer a prayer for the repose of Mrs Hughes’ soul and enjoy the beauty of the chant.

“Deliver, O Lord, the souls of all the departed faithful from all bondage of their sins and by your sustaining grace, may they be worthy of escaping the chastisement of judgment, and partake in the happiness of eternal light.”

And the here is the more familiar introit chant from which the Mass takes its name.

“Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them”
