    If you find any mistakes, don't tell me - ignorance is bliss - and I've already printed 250 of each of these!

    Maria Wiegenlied is one of my Christmas favorites. Our cantor is singing it as a prelude to a few Masses. I remember hearing it the first time and not believing it was actually Reger. Very nice program!
    Thanked by 2CHGiffen Salieri
  • Salieri, I like the multilingual aspect of your Christmas program - Polish, Latin, English AND some German. Are any of the Christmas Masses in Polish?

    AND some French, too!

    No, all of our Christmas Masses are in English (with Latin ordinary). There are only a handful of recent Polish immigrants in my area, most people are second, third, or, now, fourth generation, and Polish began to die out as a conversational language (despite the best efforts of cultural leaders like Msgr. A.A. Skoniecki) in the '40's, hardly anyone speaks it here any more. There are actually, believe it or not, more native French speakers in the parish than Polish.

    I haven't sung at Christmas Mass for several years now (the Director of Liturgy and Music and I had a little disagreement. Then my mom fell and broke her hip, so I couldn't make practice because my sister and I were helping take care of her.) This year, I am going to the Vigil Mass with my family this evening.

    I'm lazy, so I'll just upload both programs! We got busy this Fall and couldn't get together a polyphonic ordinary for the Midnight Mass. The vigil Mass was simpler than planned because my excellent parishioner violin and flute duet cancelled due to long-term health problems. Please pray for Elizabeth S.!

    We also ended up having some extra oratorio movements: fun to hear, not so fun to reduce to the organ!
