Hat tip to Jeffrey Tucker at the NLM.

Next month, 80 students from the Madeleine Choir School will be going to Rome.

Full details here (note: they got one paragraph wrong - error in bold)
When it was time to rehearse "Ave Verum," whose words are in Italian (correction: Latin), Malinka urged the students to be careful of their pronunciation. "You have to be careful to say vehrgeenay, not vurgunay," she reminded them about the Italian (correction: Latin) word virgine. Otherwise, those folks in Rome might say, "They must be an American choir."

They're going over to St. Francis in Assisi as well. The iPadre was there not too long ago. He's got the podcasts to prove it!
