Via Argent by the Tiber , here’s the musical line-up for the Mass in Yankee Stadium. Note the musical difference between this and the Mass in Nationals Stadium, which involved less traditional music and more music from the many peoples comprising American Catholicism. To me, it also seems to be the difference between John Paul II’s liturgical sensibilities and those of Benedict XVI. Pulling off a multicultural celebration in a baseball stadium has been done before; I’m looking forward to hearing what Palestrina’s “Sicut Cervus” sounds like in Yankee Stadium with 55,000.
