Liturgical Pharisaism

Limiting the carols and hymns at Advent Lessons and Carols to those which are liturgically appropriate only for Advent, thereby depriving the choir and congregation of the aesthetic pleasure of melodies they actually know and enjoy, reflects a Kantian understanding of law. Thus, I quote Mark 2:27, "The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the sabbath."
