The blog The New Liturgical Movement had a truly inspiring piece on the March of Silveri. This inspiring musical piece used to be played at the elevation in the old solemn Papal Mass. I re-post from that blog these two videos. The first video illustrates at 2:55 the March of Silveri during the Mass of Coronation of Blessed John XXIII. The second video is of the Evening Prayer Vigil held by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI for the conclusion of the Year of the Priest. You will notice at 63:15 that the March of Silveri can be heard on the arrival of the Blessed Sacrament to St. Peter's Square. For me, it reminds me of the joy felt by the Israelites upon the return of the Ark of the Covenant to them. This could very well be the first time in decades that the March of Silveri was played in the context of a Papal Liturgy.
