High Mass Recorded Live
Copyright © 2016 St. Joseph's Media
This digitally mastered collection of hymns and Masses sung by the Marian
Sisters of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) and the Mt. St.
Michael Parish Choir is the closest thing to being in the choir loft. The unique
CD was recorded nearly 20 years ago on an Otari four track and brings you
soprano, alto, tenor and bass voices in unparalleled clarity and warmth.
Separate SATB CD’s will also be available so choir members can easily learn

Mass In Honor of Our Lady Queen of the Franciscan Order. Three Palestrina
polyphonic (multiple part) compositions and 14 Catholic hymns are also

day” (Easter Sunday).

there are rare occurrences of slight background noise that is no deterrent to the
quality of the CD. This is in contrast to the ideal, sterile conditions found in a
It is no small miracle that this music was preserved. The tape even had to be
cooked in a convection oven for hours to retain its contents. In spite of the age
and natural deterioration of the original tape, the twin priests who made the
final mix hope you enjoy this “little bit of Heaven.”
