"This was just one of the liturgies that week! And, musically speaking, it was
perhaps the most "low-key" of all the liturgies. For real magnificence, I'll
have another post up soon with photos and recordings of the Solemn Pontifical
Vespers from the Friday evening of Colloquium week. " - Fr. Johansen
