CHRISTUS VINCIT ANYWHERE! 129


Listen below, or download here. (33:32/30.7 MB)

Technology has made even Holy Mass accessible on the Web. In today's show, we've picked out the four churches with the best regular celebrations of the Mass (and with the best music) in English on the Web.

Feasts for the Week: April 1-7.  For more information: New Advent Website.
Christus Vincit Semi-Live on I-195: Last Sunday, I was the substitute organist for two Masses at a friend's parish in Fall River, Massachusetts. Per that friend's request, I am keeping the friend's name and parish name anonymous. Today we discuss the music we did that day, the Third Sunday of Easter.

1. Sing with All the Saints in Glory (tune: Hymn to Joy)
2. O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing (tune: O Filii et Filiae)
3. Alleluia! Sing to Jesus (tune: Hyfrydol)
4. The Strife Is O'er, the Battle Done (tune: Victory)
