Regarding “Modern day Catholic hymn giants,” Oct. 20, page 18:

Like you, we use the Oregon Catholic Press hymn book every Sunday, and I am always pleased to see the music for the psalms composed by Owen Alstott. Not only are they beautiful but they trigger warm memories because I went to high school with Owen more than 50 years ago at Mount Angel Seminary.

I remember him as a quiet, humble, and spiritual person who never said anything unkind about anyone.  Although I never saw him after this time, I am certain he is this way even today.
