For the Kiss of Peace – a lengthy rite in which the new priest is greeted by all the other priests present – we spun out the Duruflé by alternating the antiphon with chant verses not set by the composer. It was a haunting mixture, and timed to perfection. Before that, we raised the roof with the Gospel Acclamation, which struck exactly the right note of power and drama for a grand gathering of the diocese for a truly special event.
