Laetare in Lafayette
Laetare for me was resplendent again. Excellent hymns and a nice choral anthem. The ordinary was a compilation of well-composed canticles including the Sanctus from the Proulx Community. Hymns were: HOUSTON, RESIGNATION, and SCHMUECKE DICH. The choir sang a setting of Psalm 51 by Fettke. I had never heard the piece before. It was sung and played very well. I was especially happy to hear Soul, Adorn Thyself With Gladness at the communion. My choir used to sing this chorale as an anthem, and I myself had grown up hearing and singing it.
