Well done! And I like cheese, too!

I may have to apologize for complaining, "Must there be cheeze in church, and must it be sung by me?"
I'm coming to believe that there IS a place for Cheese.
I may have heard wrong, (I've been insanely busy, and have about 12 hours of "Pope Tapes" yet to watch,) but i believe that that lovely polyphonic setting of the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis sung at the Ecumencial Meeting in Washington was the work of Lord Org - Sergeant With Arms, of the Suspicious Cheese Lords.

You are quite right. Cheese Lord George P. Cervantes was the composer of that exquisite setting of the "Peace prayer of St Francis of Assisi." You can hear us Suspicious Cheese Lords sing it for the Holy Father at:


Under the "Media" section is a video of the entire service. Somewhere around 19:00 is where the "Sacred Music Ensemble" is announced. Despite all the camera clickings, coughing and chair shifting, the sound comes through quite nicely. Even at the end, you can see Pope Benedict look up and smile at us then start clapping.

You can see excerpts of my CNN interview at:
