Church Music
This is something that has always been of interest to me, though I cannot say too much of high praise for the more contemporary music found at the 11am service.

Anyhow, for anyone who is willing to post Church music here, it would be nice to have a collection to listen to.

Although I am not one of the Papists, I have to admire the music Catholic and Orthodox Churches have given us. You all might find this a nice youtube channel for such a thing. Not much else compares:

Do look into it. This thread is non-denominational and anything of any significant note to you guys would be welcome here.

RE: Church Music
Here are some of my favorites.

This one is Indian believers singing my favorite Gospel hymn, "At Calvary", had it sung at my mother's funeral.

"The Master of The Sea", most these words are lifted directly from Matthew:

Why do bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people? Prophets asked this and so do we today:

Ah, mystical enchantment dubbed up for the Top 40! For me, I'll stick with Schubert's Ave Maria, simple yet haunting.

Here is the gregorian chant rendering of the text:

Church music as "pop" looses all significance save in a good black "gospel" setting:

Perhaps like Belushi some of you "will see the light"!

RE: Church Music
Crossover blue grass/Gospel you would hear in a Church like my wife was raised in:

Heard this a lot as a kid. The hoot on the double bass went to school with my mother in Etowah,TN. His name is Jake Tullock (deceased).

Check and see if you get EWTN. They brodcast the Easter Vigil from the National Shrine. The Great Vigil has a lot of great music, a few that can only be sung at that one Mass. This one is great: http://ionarts.blogspot.com/2005/03/easter-wishes.html then comes the Exultet...

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

RE: Church Music
As different as they each sound, they all seek to honor and worship Christ and with me, that's what's significant.

RE: Church Music
I hope this isn't a thread hi-jacking, but the one singer often touted as the best gospel singer of all-time is Sandy Patti. This is her best performance, and was not out of the hymnal - but still has that same feel of sincerity and faith. This rendition was created and written especially for her at the commemoration of the 100th anniversary and the unveiling of the Statue of Liberty, after Iaccoca's renovation.

What wrong with hack poetry set to pedestrian musical noise drawn from the taverns?

RE: Church Music
Crucem Sanctum (Antiphona)

This and others were recovered from manuscripts found in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. They are Templar chants, and reflect what the Templars really were: warrior monks. Ensemble Organum sings this particular one and others. I find them to be one my very favorite choirs. I've read this described as military march and a Catholic chant all in one.

Enjoy. There are many others out there, such as this one:

Salve Regina is another favorite:

Le Chant des Templiers XIIè siècle : Manuscrit du Saint-Sépulcre

Too much of Church music in the US is weak, ridiculous, and overly mushy (especially since the feminization of many churches and sects in the US). This is a breath of fresh, yet ancient, air.

RE: Church Music
What a tremendously deep, full, and smoothe voice he has. Like Bing Crosby but an octave lower. To my knowledge, he is still living.
