Lux Fulgebit: A CD for the Christmas Season

As we approach the Advent and Christmas seasons, we remind New Liturgical Movement readers of the CD Lux Fulgebit: The Mass at Dawn of Christmas Day. Produced by the Schola Cantorum of St Mary’s Church in Norwalk, Connecticut, it offers a little-known Mass setting, Christe Jesu, by William Raser; this is possibly the only recording of the 16th Century work, and has with it motets by Ferrabosco, Byrd, and Lambe.
Done in context from the opening bell, the recording includes the Gregorian propers, as well as the lessons of the Mass, Collects, and Preface. The CD includes liner notes explaining the music and the composers; until November 28, it is on sale for only $15, and may be ordered on-line at
