Requiem for His Royal Highness, King Louis XVI
edit_button

A few years ago I posted a video with scenes from the Requiem Mass at St.Eugene-St.Cecile (Paris, France) on the occasion of the anniversary of the death of the former King. This year again on January 21st, the anniversary of the death of His Royal Highness, a Solemn Requiem Mass was said at Saint-Eugene-Sainte-Cecile (Paris IX).

 This year the choir sang the Requiem written by Cherubini in memory of Louis XVI which was commissioned by Louis XVIII in 1816. Also worthy of mention, the black set of vestments were offered to the parish by princes of Bourbon-Parme.

Let us pray for the repose of his soul and all of those Catholics murdered in by the vile intentions of the rebels in the French Revolultion.

God bless you in your work, but just a clarification: a King is not "His Royal Highness," which is the title for princes of the Blood Royal, but "His Majesty."
