Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Sitting in at the RFEC this morning, I noticed again an increasing  tendency amongst those around me whilst singing the Benedictus to pronounce the second syllable of “Hosanna” like “ran”.  I have always pronounced it “ah” as in “Hahvahd Yahd” and furthermore shall continue to do so.

I don’t know that there’s any particular doctrinal issue here, but I thought I’d mention it as that flattened “a” always gives me the willies.
