A couple of really cool tidbits I want to share:
1. On Friday, December 8 (Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception), our offertory anthem will be sung by an eight-year-old. The eight-year-old daughter of one of our choir members has Schubert's Ave Maria NAILED - in B-flat (yes, she hits those high F's clean).
2. On Sunday, December 10 (II Advent), the television Mass for the diocese of Fall River will feature yours truly at the organ console. This is the same television Mass I took part in last spring. I was invited once again by Fr. Thomas Kocik, noted author of The Reform of the Reform?, who is celebrating Mass that weekend. BTW, I don't miss Mass at Holy Ghost over this. This Mass is actually being recorded this Saturday, December 2. More as this develops.
