In response to a question on last week's posting, my repeating of "Praise, my soul, the King of heaven" - at the beginning of the month, the parish took this hymn NEW. May not be new to many organists, but (unfortunately) is new to many Catholic parishes, at least around here. I think in my years I've heard ONE organist do "Praise my soul". When I take something new, I repeat it for 3-4 weeks at a time so that the people will have it down, and I can safely use it again a few weeks later down the line. :-)
