Golly gee, Dr. Mark C. (it rhymes): if my comment was no big deal, there certainly has been much said about it. As stated in one source: "A chorale is a melody to which a hymn is sung by a congregation in a German Protestant Church service. Th

Atrys...I before thought you were proud and perhaps a little narrow-minded, but I now worry that you're perhaps cruel or, at the least, too obnoxious to understand how cruel you may be being. I mean, um, you have *no* idea what the OP's life is like;
