Solemn High Mass Vestment Sets

Solemn Mass (Latin: missa solemnis), sometimes also referred to as Solemn High Mass or simply High Mass, is, when used not merely as a description, the full ceremonial form of the Tridentine Mass, celebrated by a priest with a deacon and a subdeacon, requiring most of the parts of the Mass to be sung, and the use of incense.

The term "High Mass" is also used in the United States to describe the more common Missa Cantata, which lacks deacon and subdeacon and some of the ceremonies connected with them. The terms Solemn Mass, Solemn High Mass, and High Mass are also often used within Anglo-Catholicism in which the ceremonial and, usually, the text, are based on those of the Tridentine Mass. This article deals with Solemn Mass as celebrated according to the Tridentine use.

These terms distinguish the form in question from that of Low Mass and Missa Cantata.

The parts assigned to the deacon and subdeacon are often done by Priests in vestments proper to those roles.

NECS are now able to offer the complete High Mass package saving you £££'s against when buying the items individually.  Many individual garments can also be matched to enable you to make up your own High Mass Set too.  Below is a sample range that we can offer, but don't forget, we can also make your own bespoke set.
