Veils, Vernacular, and Culture: Death and All of its Friends.
"How amazed I was the first time I heard a Latin Te Deum. It was a lengthy piece, hovering to and fro, with its feather-light questioning and answering, a mixture of psalm, litany, and profession of faith […] The Latin Te Deum takes both listener and singer gently by the hand and leads them to a high mountain, where an unlimited vista opens out before them" (Heresy of Formlessness, p. 24).
Remove the veil. Reveal a dead culture.
