Three Christ Masses

On Christmas Eve, the First Christ Mass included the choir, a portion of which can be heard between the (chanted) Gospel and sermon, in this recording. The Second Christ Mass, at midnight, is my favorite, and the recording of its sermon is here. The Third Christ Mass, in the middle of Christmas morning, is here.

Advent III Midweek mass, Gospel from St. Luke 1:39-46, sermon here.
