An Extraordinary Papal Mass?

Don Jim says what we've all been thinking: will B16 himself celebrate a Tridentine Mass?

He opines,

Maybe not the full-blown Solemn Papal Mass with silver trumpets and ostrich feathers, but I do think some form of the old Papal Mass (perhaps Papal Low Mass) is very likely now.

A Papal Low Mass (is there any precedent for such a thing at the high altar of a major basilica?) would be nice, but I for one will not be truly happy until I have seen the Liturgical Consumation of the Ostrich restored to its place in Roman worship... Sigh.

Some photos of Pontifical Masses.
