(36:49/33.7 MB) Have you ever sang certain hymns and wonder just where they went?  Well, today we start a little series of hymns that we miss over here, and we're using a hymnal that I'll bet is hardly remembered - the 1976 (premiere) edition of We Celebrate (The picture on the left is one of the logos I describe).  We combed through just the first 50 hymns alone and you should see what we came up with.  Also, we combed through all four editions of Worship and came up with a new hymnal containing the best of all four: Worship - Ultimate Edition! PLUS: Duck and cover (just ask Shamus O'Reilly), and a law student who wants to play, but doesn't want to pay! Feasts for the Week: March 11-18 In What We Have Done, and in What We're Going to Do: the "have done" for First Friday and the Second Sunday of Lent, and the "going to do" for the Third Sunday of Lent.

      Listen below, or download here. (1:00:14/55.1 MB) We're covering a couple of topics in this hour (give or take 14 seconds) of fun! One answers the question of what a funeral is like at my parish.  What music do I play?  What music do we allow and disallow?  We cover that, as well as play a good number of pieces from a recent funeral.  The other describes the differences, improvements, and declines in the four hymnals pictured at left.  Also, does a pop singer deserve to have the American flag flown at half-mast? Feasts for the Week: February 22-March 4 Don't Do This at Church: Ashes on the fly!
