Set your alarm: the Inauguration

Have you made your plans yet? You need to go to bed early on Monday night so that you can rise at 4:30am Eastern Time to watch the epic inauguration of Pope Francis. The music alone will be monumental, probably the best that has ever been present on such an occasion.

This is a big big moment for sacred music. The whole world will hear Gregorian propers and polyphony for the first time. This is the music of Vatican II, brought to us because of the glorious papacy of Benedict XVI and given as a gift to Pope Francis.

Also, please let all your friends know too. This is absolutely not to be missed.

Here is the Vatican Live Player.
