A historical reenactment of the liturgy in the 1400s, on video

This video, shared by UCatholic on their YouTube channel, beautiful and interesting as it is, is not a liturgical celebration. It is, instead, just a historical recreation of how the Mass would have been celebrated a hundred years before the Concilium Tridentinum, that is, the famous Counter-Reformist Council of Trent. Beautiful as it is, it is in any case, just that: an artistic reenactment of what the liturgical celebration of the Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost, October 4, 1450, might have been like.
