No time to blog today! Got the three-page list of choir music for Holy Week and Easter, and am dashing out to go start practicing all of it. Some good stuff, including Bach and Bruckner!
Since I can't write anything coherent until much later--or probably tomorrow--please go and read two more excellent posts by Deirdre Mundy about the Legion of Christ:
