One of my most pleasant memories from a week in Australia several years ago was an ANZAC Day Mass at St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney. The cathedral was full. The people knew the hymn, the creed, the prayers. The choir was wonderful. I was very impressed. I have 2 CD's of their choir that I still play sometimes and remember my trip to Australia.
One of St. Mary's Cathedral's four choirs is the St. Mary's Singers. Fifteen of their anthems are available free on the St. Mary's Singers website.
And here is a link to the World Youth Day Sydney 2008 website. A competition for the World Youth Day 2008 song has closed, and the winner will be announced a few weeks from now on Palm Sunday. There is a prayer campaign. And you can buy stuff.
Group Registration for World Youth Day 2008 in Sydney is now open online. I know that everyone who is able to go will have a wonderful time. And I will be watching it on TV from California, remembering my trip. Maybe I will post a few photos from Australia now and then over the coming year when there is a post that they will fit with.
