ERONICA BRANDT recently used a Tolkien quote for one of her blogs, so maybe that’s why one came to my mind. 1 But my article is not about a Tolkien story; it deals with a famous verse from the Bible, saying “may our prayers rise like incense to Heaven.” Play through the following harmonization by Canon Jules Van Nuffel—do you agree that the remarkable passage in yellow is Van Nuffel’s effort to paint a “heavenly” picture?
