The Litany

I discovered an editing error during today's reading, but when I went to fix it I also discovered that I had deleted all of the audio files from this recording after exporting the tracks. So, I had no way to fix it! I really apologize, and I thank you for understanding! Today we read from the Litany from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
