Old Mass Settings


#1

I think I've abused the word old, but there was a collection of Mass settings written in the 70's on YouTube from ONE user. They're all horrible and ridiculous sounding, and liturgically abusive...but I need it because I'm doing a bit of comparison....anyone know what channel this is?

They're all LP's converted to digital audio.

EDIT: I FOUND THEM. Here's the channel for your viewing entertainment.

Not sure if all of them can be characterized as abusive. "Demonstration Mass", title notwithstanding, seems a very simple congregational setting - and probably because of the time it was written uses a translation very similar to our revised translation of the Mass.

Anyhow, they are interesting....I remember a large number of the songs from my old parish which are probably still being sung there-- "Take our bread", "All That I Am". "The Living God", "Of My Hands" were staples of the evening weekday Masses and many of the weekend ones as well.
