A little musical humor

Leave it to church musicians to come up with something like this.
Hope you enjoy it!
I wish I could have you hear what was done at the CMAA's music colloquium last year, it was just as good as this, if not better. Using fauxbourdon and gregorian chant, a psalm was sung with a touch of humor like this: verse (chant): You have called me and you know me, you know when I sit and when I stand, You understand my thoughts from afar; Refrain (fauxbourdon): "...except for the English translation of the Roman Missal. Copyright 1974, International Commission on the English Language, all rights reserved."

Maybe you have to hear it to get it, but I think someone out there will find this hilarious.
