St. Paul – Day 3

Yesterday I checked out the Church of the Assumption.

And this morning I attended Mass at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

The Cathedral was really beautiful, but as I should have expected, the service was quite sterile and lifeless. A soprano so ‘well-trained’ that I couldn’t understand a word she was singing. And music selections clearly chosen to be artistically beautiful, but not especially singable by the assembly. Why bother, we’re really just an afterthought anyway.
