- Rorate at the Cathedral of Brixen:
For those who want to experience an evocative moment rooted in the most authentic religious tradition, we recommend the "rorate" masses. They are votive masses celebrated at 6:30 a.m.before sunrise. The liturgy takes place by candlelight, accompanied by the choir and musicians. The rorate masses are held every day of Advent in the Cathedral of Brixen, a tradition that has been repeated continuously since 1606. The "rorate" takes its name from the Introit of the mass on the fourth Sunday of Advent: "Rorate Cœli desúper, Et nubes plúant justum". "Drip dew, or heavens, from above, and the clouds rain the Just". It was Bishop Christoph Andreas Spaur (1601-1613) who started this much-loved tradition in 1606.
