Re "The power to lift and heal," Column One, March 25 Thanks to Randy Lewis for sharing his experience singing Mozart. Having sung in church choirs since 1972, and having more than once sung both Mozart's Requiem and "Ave Verum Corpus," I can say to Lewis, "Welcome to the club. " Here's an obscure quote regarding "Ave Verum Corpus" from a textbook that belonged to my great-grandmother: "We now give, as a last model example, a perfect masterwork of harmonic composition, chosen from among many as best adapted for this purpose on account of its pregnant character within small compass.

SUCH A serious article on Randy Newman ["He's Back in the Saddle" by Randy Lewis, Aug. 3]. Not that he shouldn't be taken seriously -- he's great. But I would have liked to know if he still "loves L.A." in 2008. Jon Konjoyan Toluca Lake

The morning commute was like any other - almost. As cars flew by on the northbound 710, I hit "play" on my iPod and a melody swept over me. Rush hour melted away. "Ah-vey, ah-vey, veh-room corrrr-pooose," the choir began. The Latin words open "Ave Verum Corpus" (Hail true body), a choral composition that has captivated listeners for more than two centuries. I sang along, and I wasn't doing it alone. At that moment, two friends in New Jersey and Georgia were singing the words as well.

KSWD-FM (100.3), which calls itself "The Sound," will do its part to usher along the resurgence of vinyl with a day of programming Wednesday devoted to music on those circular black discs of yore. The album-oriented rock station will offer "Album Sides Wednesday" following what was described as a successful test run of the concept in November, when albums including U2's "The Joshua Tree," Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" and Bob Marley's "Exodus" were aired in their vinyl formats.

Regarding Randy Lewis' review of Jackson Browne's "World in Motion" (Calendar, June 4): In a world so full of blatant hate, greed and destruction, there are only a few people willing to open their hands, hearts and/or talents to those in need. Jackson Browne is one of those rare few who has dedicated his life and, currently, his career to making a difference. Through his music, Jackson reaches out, even if only to a group of his admirers, in an effort to spread an awareness of, and a desire to question, the wars, our leaders and even ourselves.

Bruce Springsteen will add his name to the roster of classic-rock stars who have performed during halftime at the Super Bowl with an appearance Feb. 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. Springsteen and the E Street Band follow the Rolling Stones, U2, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Paul McCartney taking the stage at the Super Bowl, which last year drew 148 million viewers. The Springsteen canon is deep and wide, so anything's possible for a Super Bowl set, but it's hard to imagine him not including such gridiron-ready numbers as "Tougher Than the Rest," "Cover Me," "Glory Days" and the slam-dunk choice, "Born to Run."
