Drinkalongathon 2013 - St. Bernardus Abt and more carols
I thought I'd see how well Abt paired with carols. But I've flipped over to a German channel. Good for the mystical incomprehensibility. And I don't know all the tunes.
The saintly full booziness of the Abt reinforces the saintliness of the singing - a sort of saint boost, if you will. The Abt's sweetness counterpoints the shrill screeching of the choir girls.
"Dolores, look - they've got girls singing. Who will the gay priests fiddle with?"
The German catholic service is remarkably similar to the Anglican one.
