      Well Steve, "From our heads direct" still strikes me as awkward...and
      "By thinking" doesn't. Over all though, you're saying that Frau
      Unger's rendering is more in line with "your thesis" than
      Frank's...ok, got it...but since I can't properly read the original I
      don't have an opinion...Gaelman

        I've heard this on the radio so it's been recorded by a
        mainstream artist-I want to say K.D. Lang but I'm not sure. It
        starts off with:

        Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
        Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Dominica, Mary Angelica
        Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronella
        Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir
        and all the rest ...

        And ends with:

        Calling all angels,
        Calling all angels
        We're trying,
        We're hoping,
        We're hurting,
        We're loving
        We're crying,
        We're calling,
        Because we're not sure how this goes.
