Archbishop Hart stood for the Gloria at the 11.00 am Mass on Sunday 18 September 2005 at St. Patrick's cathedral in Melbourne.
Usually at this Sunday Mass he sits for the Gloria, despite the instructions of the Ceremonial of Bishops, n. 135: "During the Gloria all stand."
For this Mass there was a special leaflet with all the people singing part of the Gloria and Kyrie. They were composed by Richard Proulx for the Te Deum Mass.
On 23 June 2002 Archbishop Hart stood for the Gloria, when this same setting was used.
The choir will be on holidays for the next two weeks. When they return it will become clearer whether this standing for the Gloria at this Mass is to be an exception for Archbishop Hart.
