On leaving the Vatican after his abdication: “I was deeply moved. The cordiality of the farewell, also the tears of my collaborators. [His voice breaks with emotion.] On the roof of the Casa Bonus Pastor there was written in huge letters «Dio gliene renda merito» [“May God reward you”]. (The Pope weeps) I was really deeply moved. In any case, while I hovered overhead and began to hear the bells of Rome tolling, I knew that I could be thankful and my state of mind on the most profound level was gratitude.”
— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (23 May 2016)

A NOTE ABOUT HYMN HARMONIZATIONS :

The “perfect” hymn harmonization does not exist. Harmonizations must be chosen according to: 1.) skill of the organist; 2.) acoustic of the Church; 3.) type of choir; 4.) needs of the congregation; 5.) amount of verses to be sung; 6.) time of day (lower for morning, higher for evening); and a thousand other important considerations. For this reason, we included the “standard” harmonization for each hymn. We also included transpositions for more than half of the hymns (based on range and tessitura, which, incidentally, are not the same thing). Furthermore, we included alternate harmonizations when this seemed appropriate.
