Father William Finn's Paulist Choirs

I am looking for any recordings of Father Finn's Choirs.  It needn't be of great quality.  I want to use it for a course that I teach.  Many thanks.

Please share your findings; for many years I have been wanting to put together a recorded anthology of the choirs and conductors mentioned in the first chapter of Choral Conducting: A Symposium (the chapter by Howard Swan).  This would be a great step in that direction.    Many Thanks!   Tim Banks

Dr. Banks, I have enjoyed your work on YouTube.
I, too, have desired some recorded work of Fr. Finn. As you know, Roger Wagner and Paul Salamunovich were fond of the Paulist work and Fr. Finn. I asked Paul several years ago if there were any recording preserved. He said that after exaustive searching there is, sadly, none.
Obviously if there were a commercial recording there would be something.
Remember at his time a radio station could make a disc or a studio could, but it would be in bad shape by now. 
I have three of his books which are a doctoral degree if digested.

Was Father Finn a Paulist Father?  Have you asked the Paulists directly?  I wonder if the Church of St Paul the Apostle (the Paulist mother church in NYC) would have anything in their library.  Just an idea,
