    Why do none of these links work?

    Thanks for the links. I think I only listened to part of the discussion of “Conditor alme siderum” the first time around. I was glad to listen to the whole thing this time. The next time I direct a choir in the Latin version of the hymn, I will be sure to tell them what they’re really singing when they pronounce “Conditor” incorrectly (and they will)! We will be singing it Vespers tonight, but we will be singing in English; it is old-school Vespers, but given our particular group, it just makes sense to do it in English.
