My books just came - and lo and behold, skimming through Michael's, I found just what I needed to see right now. A description of the organist as the most distracted person at Mass - yup, that's me. Maybe I'll do better this weekend just because I saw that sentence. Thanks, Michael.That comment about the organist was made to me when I was telling a Benedictine monk who does missions around the world about the book, I thought it was interesting and so I put it in the book but when I think about it, there is a lot of competition for "who the most distracted person is at Mass" and the monk who noticed the organist might be a candidate as well!
By the way visit Mary Jane's excellent blog where you can learn all about liturgy from a fine muscian.
