Dubya would be proud!

I have long maintained that Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus is God's favorite song. It's an absolutely perfect piece of music, in my humble opinion. I had a chance to sing it in high school and was delighted when Chester's boychoir worked on it last spring. (The mp3 is not my choir or his, in case you were wondering. ;)

Anyway, Wolfie came home a couple days ago with his recorder and began to play the melody from the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the "Ode to Joy." Another nearly perfect piece of music, so I told Chester that it was God's second favorite song. After thinking a moment, Chester said, "I thought God's second favorite song was Yankee Doodle?"
