Following on from the previous post about the visit of the Abbot of the Canons Regular of the Mother of God to England, I was very pleased to receive a DVD about the Canons recently. In point of fact, I received two DVD's. One, a short version at 12 minutes in length. The other, a longer version at 45 minutes in length.
The DVD shows the Abbey of Lagrasse itself and the life of the Canons therein and it is a remarkably well produced, visual and auditory treat. It will guide you (pleasantly, without commentary) through their horarium and in the process, show various aspects of their life at Lagrasse, not the least of which the solemn liturgical life lived there in accordance with the liturgical books of the usus antiquior.
