The Sublime and the Subliminal

While I very much approved of our first hymn at mass this morning, "Ye Choirs of New Jerusalem", by St Fulbert of Chartres, I am inclined to think that the chap responsible for the music rather let a wicked sense of humour get the better of him in the selection of "Praise the Lord, ye heavens adore Him" with its tune of "Austria" by Haydn. The said tune is perhaps better known in its association with the German National Anthem, Deutschland uber alles- guaranteed to raise a smile for most Brits. What an eejit!
