Mass of the Carmelite Rite

In the early days of the Order of Malta the knights would have followed the liturgical rite in place in Jerusalem at the time which was that of the Holy Sepulchre. The traditional Carmelite Rite known up until Vatican II is basically that same liturgy of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem that our confrere's would have known. This short video clip of a Carmelite Mass in 1960 is a beautiful historical look at the closest form of the Mass that the brethren would have experienced prior to following the Roman Rite reforms of Pope St. Pius V.
