Chant Aeternum

From a NYTimes (!!!!!) article:

Bells peal and the chant begins — low at first, then swelling as all the monks join in. Their soft voices wash over the ancient stones, replacing the empty clatter of the day with something like the sound of eternity.

Given the aversion of the LiturgyWonks to Chant, the Times' characterization makes Chant seem to be like a silver cross.
