Here is a CD that you might enjoy from the Schola Cantorum of St. Peter's in the Loop:

November Feasts

Here are the tracks:

* By All Your Saints in Warfare
* Communion Antiphon: Beati Mundo Corde
* Offertory Antiphon: Justorum Animae
* Jerusalem, My Happy Home
* Responsory: Laudem Dicite
* Magnificat Antiphon: O Quam Gloriosum Est Regnum
* In the Midst of Earthly Life
* Give Rest, O Christ
* Lord, It Belongs Not to My Care
* In the Resurrection
* Now the Laborer's Task Is O'er
* Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
* Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord
* Sing to the Lord of Harvest
* Canticle: Te Deum Laudamus
* To Jesus Christ, Our Sovereign King
* O Kingly Love
* Christus Vincit
* Antiphon: Worthy Art Thou, O Lord
* Hail to the Lord's Anointed, Benediction and Seven-fold Amen
* Crown Him with Many Crowns

Especially beautiful is the Franzman hymn "O Kingly Love" - which was in LW was didn't make it into LSB. It's difficult for a congregation to sing, but what a glorious hymn!

Father Hollywood, thanks for calling my attention to this CD. It certainly sounds quite good. I agree with concerning "O Kingly Love." It is the only hymn that we've ever purposely avoided at Emmaus, solely for the sake of the fact that it would have been too challenging for the folks to sing. I'm glad that you and yours have been able to use and enjoy it.
