Ward Propers for Children Heard Again

A while back, the CMAA posted these rare Ward Propers for Children for download. They are set to Psalm tones for children, so that children can think about words without worrying too much about the music. What a thrill it was for me to hear that the these were actually used this past week, by children, in the Prince of Peace parish of Tyler, South Carolina! It wouldn't surprise me to know that this might have been the first time in 50 years that these were used. This sort of thing really lifts the heart.
