The Catholic People Sing

Here are Catholics in Madison, Wisconsin, singing at a shopping mall in front of Macy's -- many popular chant hymns in Latin! This is just a fantastic way to do missionary work for the Catholic faith, singing music that people want Catholics to sing and expect Catholics to sing. Imagine yourself as a non-Catholic hearing this. What a sense of the stability and tradition of the faith is imparted by this action. A special congratulations to the director for thinking of this idea, and carrying it off with such grace, charm, and dignity. This kind of thing helps restore the reputation of Catholic music.

I wish I could embed this video, but don't let that discourage you. Have a look.
