And Continuing the Grousing...

Watching the live feed of the Holy Father's visit to England yesterday I was impressed by Evening Prayer at Westminster Abbey, in which the Pope participated. The music was glorious: a superb mix of Bach, Byrd, Purcell (who was the Abbey Organist for twenty-five years), Elgar, Reger, Duruflé, Wesley, Stanford and Howells, all performed and sung magnificently.

In short, it was an embarrassment to any music-loving Catholic. I can't help wonder if the Anglicans did this just to rub it in. If so, they succeeded.
