Deacon Greg emailed me yesterday that one of his readers wished he would send him to someone podcasting hours of the Divine Office without chant.
Well, I never said I was much of a singer, so I’m not hurt. But for this morning, to please this reader, I bring you Morning Prayer Without the Chant.
Let me know which you prefer. If people would rather I not chant, I’ll just speak the Offices.
And once more, please – I’m really serious – please let me know if these things are unlistenable, either because of hums, hisses and whines (not yours, the audio’s) or because I just sound ugh. I’d rather know the truth than hear polite fiction. If I’m making an ass of myself, please let me know!
Once again, I’m sorry for the less-than-stellar recording. My computer is very old and my headset came with my Rosetta Stone software, so between that stuff and my own rackety voice, we’re starting off with a solid “B,” here, and hoping for the best. But I’m saving up for new equipment!
