Those who haven't been to a Tridentine Mass...please go. It's very beautiful. The way the Latin services SHOULD be conducted!
I agree...as long as we're talking about the so-called "High" Mass, with the full complement of priest, deacon, subdeacon, servers, choir, etc., and everything chanted except the silent Canon/Anaphora. This was almost certainly the way Mass was before the Schism.
"Low" Mass is where a priest and server read the Mass somewhat quietly, almost as if it was a private Mass that the congregation happened to show up to. It is possible to have a choir sing over the Mass at certain parts as well, but that almost takes away from it. It lead to most people praying their own private devotions during Mass instead of praying as one body, which is not how Liturgy should be.
Vatican II was supposed to fix that by calling for "active" participation, but since the parts of the document calling for some Latin to be retained and the Chants to be retained were ignored, that lead to its own abuses. Bad translations, possibly with an agenda, didn't help either, to the point where it caused sedevacantist groups to claim the Pope isn't the Pope because he allows all this to continue and doesn't excommunicate everyone who follows the more lenient positions of the Church today, making him a heretic. This matters for Catholics because we have to ensure wherever we attend Mass is in fact in communion with the Pope, and many groups using the older Mass are out of communion. (I guess kind of like Old Believers and Old Calendarists?)
That being said, there are also a very few places that use the current Roman Missal in Latin with the Chants prescribed. There is also a movement to translate those chants into English and use them as part of a sung Mass in English...which is just catching up to where the East is
