In the picture below I'm explaining to Monsieur Pincemaille that, in a sense, one of the influences urging me to the priesthood was the Cesar Franck "Choral No. 3 in A minor," which was the opening piece at the recital. Nothing mystical about its influence. I simply struggled so much to learn it while an undergraduate organ student, that it helped me realize that my gifts lay elsewhere!
This picture shows Monsieur Pincemaille and me with Edmund Murray, our own very talented Organist and Choirmaster.
