Thanksgiving Music - RADIO WALSINGHAM


I invite you to listen to RADIO WALSINGHAM ONLINE if you would like to hear the wonderful hymns and anthems of the USA's Thanksgiving Day.  The only way to listen without commercials from our hosting website is to purchase a VIP membership from Live365.com and then one may listen without interruption.

Our Lady of Walsingham, Houston
The music during this Friday and Saturday includes hymns, anthems, songs, and prayers that many in the USA view as essential to worship on Thanksgiving Day.  As one can imagine it is a tall order to consider the many Christian bodies and their traditions.  It is even a more difficult task to evaluate the music of worship of communities that could be seen as rising to a level of universality and excellence that all can appreciate as a musical expression of thanksgiving. 

But for me as General Manager, a national feast day like the USA's Thanksgiving Day is a delight.  The music will include a little bit of everything seeking to embrace what lifts up the heart to God through hymns, anthems, spirituals, and at least one Broadway standard. 

At RADIO WALSINGHAM we always hold in mind Our Blessed Lord's own prayer that we —all of us— may be one as a testimony to the truth of Him and His Word ... or as Fr. Paul Wattson, S.A. put it in his publications and for the Octave for Christian Unity: UT OMNES UNUM SINT. 

Click here for RADIO WALSINGHAM's page on Live365.com.  The free listing unfortunately includes Live365.com's approved commercials.  Fortunately, the VIP membership is very cheap and most who listen via computer or cell phone can afford it.  (The app for mobile phone's is a very sturdy platform, and the music quality produced on most iPhones is remarkably good.)

On behalf of RADIO WALSINGHAM ONLINE, please allow me –the chief cook and bottle washer— to wish  you and yours a most blest Thanksgiving Holy-Day.

Laudetur Jesus Christus!
