True. Its just interesting HOW it effects rituals or just spiritual observances in general.

I agree with this as well to much. Singing does make a wonderful surrogate for howling. I was in school choir from elementary all up through high school and it was an awesome experience. Also, I’m not sure why, but I’ve always found something more poetic about listening to and singing songs you don’t use every day (which usually means Latin in most circumstances).
