A little audio from midnight Mass in Manhattan

I haven’t had time to clean up the audio, but here is the Preface and Sanctus from the Mass tonight.

I am told that this is the first Solemn Mass for Christmas Midnight in some 40 years.

    Wonderful to hear-and you do have a beautiful singing voice [that’s always a plus in a Solemn Mass!] !

    Hope you had a blessed Christmas Day, Father Z !

    Father, I’m sorry, but I had no idea that was you singing until I started reading the comments! I’m a little slow on the up-take.

    Now that I know, Father Z.! I am blown away. Fabulous. Mezmerizing. How nice to scroll down to the picture inside the Church while listening to the chants. It really ‘takes you away’ as was said in the old commercial. I know, I’m dating myself.

    Father, you have been blessed. Thank you for passing that blessing on to us.
