The soul is distracted from that which is sung by a chant that is employed for the purpose of giving pleasure. But if the singer chant for the sake of devotion, he pays more attention to what he says, both because he lingers more thereon, and because, as Augustine remarks (Confess. x, 33), “each affection of our spirit, according to its variety, has its own appropriate measure in the voice, and singing, by some hidden correspondence wherewith it is stirred.” The same applies to the hearers, for even if some of them understand not what is sung, yet they understand why it is sung, namely, for God's glory: and this is enough to arouse their devotion.
— St. Thomas Aquinas

Latin Mass at the University of Steubenville
published 12 November 2012 by Cynthia Ostrowski

R. PAUL WEBER, a conductor and organist well known to all those who love Sacred music, directed the Schola Cantorum Franciscana for the first Tridentine Mass to be offered at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in many years. The Mass was offered on the Feast of Christ the King in the university chapel with approximately 350 students, staff and visitors in attendance. The celebrant was Fr. Gregory Plow, the Deacon was Fr. Vincent Huber, and the Subdeacon was Fr. John Larson, MIC. By the way, many friends of Corpus Christi Watershed currently attend the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
