"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

You've inspired me to go back and look at the Gregorian settings of these antiphons and it's been a revelation. Instead of the usual coolness that so many Gregorian performances give, those are warm and joyous. Maybe I should go back and dig out my Liber Usualis and review more.

Thank you, RMJ, for your writing and your support and your always informed criticism.
