Can we arrange a Sarum Rite Mass?

An 'English' altar.

The Sarum Rite or use, is not really a rite at all, but a form of Mass which originated at Salisbury Cathedral. It is English and Catholic to it's core and is a part of our huge Anglo Catholic patrimony. Restrained and dignified, it epitomises England and the worship of Her Church at it's best and I would be interested in anyone who would be interested in a High Mass using this rite in Manchester some time next year. We would need the correct sort of vestments, particularly albs. Any skills which you may have which you feel are useful are most welcome! The order of Mass is found below.
