This seems promising - oh me of little faith.
The good Nuns at the Rosary Shrine informed us that their brothers at the house of studies had released an album of sacred music, but until I read the playlist... (yeah, yeah, I shoulda known I could trust their musical judgement, but what passes for sacred music in some catholic circles is scary. And not in a good Halloween-ween way.)
But getta loada THIS:

      ~ Christmas Antiphon
