Audio of Tom Booth preparing NCYC for “Holy” and “Amen”

One of the amazing side benefits of being a reporter is that you record history when you don’t even know history is happening before your eyes.

Tom Booth, composer of “Mass of Life” arrangements, led worship with that music for the last time this past weekend during NCYC’s final Mass. Earlier today, I reported that Booth was considering adapting those pieces for the new translation of the Roman Missal.

But, you don’t have to say goodbye forever. Here, you can listen to Tom lead NCYC through the “Mass of Life” music of “Holy” and “Amen” for the final time. You can also download them by clicking the arrow on the player. Enjoy this moment of American Catholic music history on the feast day of St. Cecilia, patron saint of musicians.
