Veni Creator from Stift Heiligenkreutz

Here are the monks of Stift Heiligenkreutz Abbey chanting the Veni Creator Spiritus on Pentecost during Vespers. This is from the modern form of the Divine Office - the Liturgia Horarum. Its nice to see monks doing their thing. I have often thought of getting a group of layfolk together to sing parts of the Office.

Nice to see a bishop in full regalia for Vespers. Something like this would have the power to draw vocations to the religious life. Truly a sacred vocation to chant the Office, in any form.

Could he be a mitred abbot instead of a bishop? After all, this is an abbey.
