AP Breaking: Chant Notation Found in Vicinity of Board of Governors Meeting

Ann Arbor (AP Breaking) -- As the Board of Governors of the Ave Maria School of Law are meeting in Ann Arbor to discuss the future of the law school, the Associated Press have come into the possession of a curious document which appears to be chant notation for a Catholic communion antiphon of the liturgy.

The document, found on the floor of the hallway outside of the room where the Board of Governors are meeting, resembles the form of a liturgical text, but bears no relation to the substance of any known communion antiphon in the whole corpus of Catholic liturgical texts.

An administrative staff member speaking on condition of anonymity to protect his job and family, said that the document was likely created by an albino Jesuit monk who is believed to be part of a secret wing of the Jesuit order dedicated to liturgical innovation who are believed to be based near the planned site of the Ave Maria Town in Florida. "There has been a lot of discussion around the Ave Maria Foundation staff that the Oratory in Ave Maria Town will be the head quarters for these guys. This is the kind of thing they are going to be doing down there," the frightened staff member said. "It looks Catholic and sounds Catholic, but well read it yourself!"

The staff member had no idea what the document was doing on the floor outside the Board of Governors' conference room, but AP has received earlier reports of chanting being heard outside the meeting.
