White Christmas?

With the arrival of Advent one inevitably encounters Christmas Carols both sacred and otherwise. While I would very much prefer sacred music, here's and example of a secular carol made into a Traditional Catholic one...

I’m dreaming of a broad indult,
and chant restored to pride of place.
Mass ad orientem,
Usque venientem
would be a wondrous Christmas grace.

I’m dreaming of a broad indult,
Just like we’ve heard through the grapevine
May we all be turned towards the divine
And may Christmas Mass be Tridentine!

*Christum, understood
