All have seen

All the ends of the earth
have seen the salvation of our God:
sing joyfully to God, all the earth. – Psalm 98:3

Viderunt Omnes

"Viiiiiiiiiiiiii -------!"

Why Viderunt Omnes?  Many reasons.  Too many for a short posting.  Someday I'll have to write up why Viderunt Omnes is such a lovely bit of the Psalms for jubilating in God's glory, and the amazing story of Perotin's twelfth-century setting of it - but for the moment, one can simply enjoy Viderunt Omnes without my elaboratory verbiage.  And when you read this blog, may there always in the back of your mind be that lovely ... "Viiiii -----!".
