The FIUV in Rome, Part 5

Vespers with Archbishop Pozzo and Cardinal Castrillon

Cardinal Castrillon at Vespers

The Open Forum on Saturday afternoon was followed by Vespers and Benediction, at which Archbishop Guido Pozzo, Secretary of the Pontifical Council Ecclesia Dei, presided, and Dario, Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, attended. Matthew Schellhorn excelled himself in the music for this, with Magnificat septimi toni by Viadana; a world premier, in a piece by the young composer Thomas Neal, Tantum ergo, and Ave verum corpus by Byrd.
