Words of consecration in TLM - aloud or silent?

As per title. I’ve come across both practices and I’m wondering where the difference is from. I doubt it’s up to the priest per se, so is it different between missals or high/low mass or…?

In all TLM Masses (high or low), they are to be said secretly - pronounced but audible to the priest only.

Strange… so how come my grandmother remembers hearing the priest distinctly pronouncing “hoc est enim corpus Meum”, each word separately and after a pause, some time between WWII and the Council? Did it change during that time?

The 1967 document Tres Abhinc Annos gave permission to say the Canon aloud. I’m not sure between WW II and the Council- maybe her parish was experimenting or something? the only time the Canon was said aloud was at ordination Masses.

It did not. Her recollection is not accurate. Happens all the time.

That explains something I’ve been wondering about then - I thought ArchBishop Burke said the consecration audibly at the ordinations of the ICKSP here in St. Louis this summer.

Not sure I understand. The change came about in October, 1967. Abp. Burke celebrates for ICR according to the 1962 missal, which includes a silent canon. :confused:

Then I’m confused too. Maybe someone else was there that heard differently. I could be wrong.

He was mentioning for the ordinations of priests, no? Wasn’t that is allowed under the rubrics of the Pontifical, even the 1962?

Correct, I’m specifically talking about the ordination mass this summer at the Bascilica.
