I used to sing this in Latin when I was one of the Sopranos in the choir at Blessed Sacrament Church in Westminster, California.
It took tons of practice as we needed to be able to sing the songs in Latin with the right vocal annunciation, but when it was done it sounded like God literally touched our voices and ourselves from within.
It was so wonderful to see the looks on people’s faces as we touched them and their soul.
Occasionally they would allow a standing ovation in the church, which was really wonderful and made all of it so worth it. At that time I was going to church with my parents who are now in heaven but extraordinary awesome memories it made.
