“I should not like to be too harsh on this commission’s labors. It numbered a certain number of genuine scholars and more than one experienced and judicious pastor. Under different circumstances, they might have accomplished excellent work. Unfortunately, on the one hand, a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee in the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Larcaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Annibale, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”

Gregory Ceurvorst Harmonizing The Chabanel Psalms

Quite beautiful to hear those harmonies! If I were conducting, I might take a slightly faster tempo—but it seems like they’re singing in a large church, and sometimes the acoustic can dictate the tempo.
