REVIEW: Wyoming Catholic College Christmas Music CD

Wyoming Catholic CollegeI had a note from the nice folks at Wyoming Catholic College – a great place.   They have produced their second CD of Christmas Music.

It is very good!  There are some unconventional tunes on this disk.  It includes some medieval music also.  That seems appropriate for a school where student study according to the Trivium and Quadrivium.

Here is a sample track they sent me.  I think I will add it to the RADIO SABINA playlist.

This CD would make a good stocking stuffer and it would give support to a good Catholic school in Wyoming.

And be sure to look at their online VIDEO!

Speaking of Wyoming…


Mystic MonkWhen you’ve had a long day trying to come up with small gifts to give friends and perhaps colleagues and coworkers, or you just need extras for those stockings and “secret Santas”, how about listening to music from the students at Wyoming Catholic College while sipping some Mystic Monk Coffee?

HEY WAIT… packs of Mystic Monk Coffee can be nice gifts too, come to think of it!

They even have large, 5 pound bags.

There are some flashy names for some of this stuff, by the way.  Jingle Bell Joy… Shepherd’s Watch…

Hmmmm…. there is no Fr. Z Blend.  Why is there no Fr. Z Blend?   Oh well.  I think it would have to involve Sumatra and a very dark roasted Colombian.   And they need a half-caff version now.  Perhaps some pun on the Z and sleep thing… dunno.  You could drink it from a WDTPRS mug! But I digress.  See?  I can double up in commercials too!

If you are looking for gift ideas, if you want to help some monks, if you want to refresh your coffee supply, try Mystic Monk Coffee.

It’s swell!

    They sang at the IHM Carmelite Ordination in October. It was so beautiful. We were very impressed.

  2. Contrast the young people in this school with the young people idealized in the post just before this one.

    Fr. Z,

    I found Mystic Monk coffee via your blog and I have to say it is by far the best I have had. Great stuff helping great people in service to our Lord. I would love to see them do a dark roast of Kona coffee call St. Damian’s Roast. That would be sublime, but otherwise they are spot on and wonderful. I got 4 lbs. sampler pack from them to try out different stuff, next time will be a 5 lbs. of our favorite, though I have to say I have loved them all. Thanks again.

    Oh and keep up the great work on the blog. I love reading it; it is good to see the growing number of orthodox Catholics out here. Also, for anyone in the Boston area there is Mary Immaculate of Lourdes in Newton, MA. I was up there on business and went to their Tridentine Mass and it was awesome, full of reverence for our Lord and beauty that made this man’s eyes well up. Deo Gratias for them and others bringing back Catholic orthodoxy and reverence whether Novus Ordo or Tridentine.

    Stanley Grove, Assistant Prof of Music and Philosophy, is a great teacher. I highly recommend sending children to that college. He is a TAC grad.

    Father Z, “no comparison”, but the remnant Church, I am afraid.

    I am giving the Christmas Blend to some friends for Christmas and for ourselves, we are drinking our way through Jingle Bells Java – lovely and Hazelnut – our favourite.

    We make the coffee in a stove top espresso machine liking the cup of coffee it produces better than that produced by a plunger (French press).

    Great things happening in Wyoming. Though it is far away it will be on our radar for a college option when the time comes eventually.

  7. The press isn’t my very favorite way of making coffee, but I like to mix it up. It is good to have variety.

    Do they really study the trivium and the quadrivium? Compare their curriculum to the Classical Liberal Arts Academy.

    Having Jingle Bell Java this morning, delicious!
