During a commercial on "El privilegio de amar" we saw the most amazing singing group: "FireBrand Youth Choir." Besides doing modern, call-and-response music, the group did a version of "O Sacred Head, How Wounded" the likes of which I bet has never been equaled, let alone surpassed, for dynamism and precision. The night before we had heard a down-home version by another group of "Whispering Hope," which used to be in one of my piano books but that I hadn't thought of for years. I always thought it sounded like a camp-meeting-type song, but it's older than I would have thought (1868). The computer was prolific, evidently, and among his songs is "Where, O Where Has My Little Dog Gone?"
