As for the first, I regard them as creepy compromisers and don't want anything to do with them. As for the second, well, who wants to be connected to *them* after the Marciel Marsupial incident?"

hey, don't insult marsupials that way!  they're unusual and interesting animals, not child-molesting men.

That sounds like a lot of Anglican/Episcopal churches. Ideally, there's so much supply in choir-hopefuls that the doors are busting open with audition-seekers.

Our Gregorian schola can't afford to do auditioning since there are so few volunteers in the first place. We're lucky to have four choristers on a given Sunday Mass.

There are only 4 members of the schola in our church.  Still, they are selective as to who is in the choir.
