"There is a lack of that kind of organization which favors mature judgment. Move on, move on, get it out. Schemata are multiplied without ever arriving at a considered form. The system of discussion is bad … Often the schemata arrive just before the discussions. Sometimes, and in important matters, such as the new anaphoras, the schema was distributed the evening before the discussion was to take place … Father Bugnini has only one interest: press ahead and finish."

(Individual Parts) • New Hymn by Richard J. Clark

However, during the Symposium, a wonderful young lady from Las Vegas taught students—as a “breakout session”—how to create multi-track recordings. The hymn by Maestro Clark was chosen, to see whether the students could record it. (If you’ve never attempted something like this, you have no idea how difficult it is, and you’d be amazed at the amount of “moving parts” required.)

What they produced—in my humble opinion—is marvelous:
