MacKay, who had the slowest qualifying of the seven competitors in the heat, was sixth after the butterfly portion, but he moved up one position on the backstroke leg and gained another spot in the final 50 meters (freestyle).

A handful of really nice voices who together produce ensemble singing of a generally indeterminate number of parts (some of which is a function of murky sound engineering and/or acoustics of the venue), and in which interpretive nuance--articulation, dynamic variation, phrasing, accents--gives very little importance to the language and textual meaning.
Part of the problem is that the only accompaniment (Mackay does subscribe to the well-founded belief that these motets were meant to be accompanied) is a rather colorless chamber organ.
