    Bride was in a Eucharistic Choir for years at a very conservative Catholic church. It was a "High"Mass, most of it sung, in Latin. Not my taste, and I don't observe my Catholicism anymore. I guess I'm kind of a "once a Catholic."
    person. I always hated High Mass as a kid, it was boring and the incense made me gag. Anyhow, it was beautiful. The music and soaring voices, I guess I grew into appreciating it.
