Solitary pleasures.

Tonight I went to Church at St Patricks in Melbourne

The Sunday 6.30 pm Mass is a treat. Choristers sang exquisite Motets and Chants accompanied by some pretty impressive Organ music. The church is three quarters empty. What a waste. Were Britney Spears or the The Sugar Babes there, the place would have been packed. Yet the music which probably represents the peak of Western Culture goes unlistened to. Still having so few listening to something so beautiful makes one feel as if one is alone in the Church with God.
