This sounds strangely familiar. Nonetheless, the Sunday Mass telecast from Notre Dame is no longer shown on DirecTV. I did not find this impressive. The choir has talent, but, there were some irregularities (over use of EMHCs) that I did not like.
Inasmuch as I do not believe that we should have a lot of singing during Daily Mass (we should stick to singing the parts of the Mass–Gospel Acclamation, Sanctus, Memorial Acclamation and Great Amen–since these are the essentials; leave the full-blown singing for Sundays), the EWTN telecast is reverent and proper.
But, the telecast that blows everyone out of the water comes from the real CTV, the Centro Televiso Vaticano, when it tag-teams with EWTN to bring us the Papal Mass. I would suggest that those planning liturgies and celebrating them should learn from the Church’s Supreme Liturgist, himself, the Holy Father. Ever since the former Joseph Ratzinger was elected Pope Benedict XVI, the quality of Masses from the Vatican, albeit, all of the Papal liturgies, have gone up a zillion notches. He is really going at it full steam ahead. Just as the Cathedral should be the example of liturgies for the diocese to follow, St. Peter’s Basilica is giving us the example par excellence for the Universal Church to follow.
