Strong participation at Requiem Mass
At the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, the Cathedral Choir, under direction of Rudy de Vos, sang nearly all parts of the Mass for All Souls Day, Nov. 2. It was a common practice years ago, but not so today. The music was the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré and the Mass was said in Latin. There was a large crowd for the Mass, many of whom processed to the mausoleum afterward for a prayer service by cathedral Rector, Very Rev. James Matthews.
