1. In keeping with our mission, Modest Needs offers four major grants to low income but generally self-sufficient households, those who have newly returned to full-time work, those seeking to become stronger job candidates, and veterans who are transitioning from active duty service to civilian life. Our grants are designed:

    • To prevent otherwise financially self-sufficient individuals and families from entering the cycle of poverty, when this might be avoided with a small amount of well-timed financial assistance.

    • To restore the financial self-sufficiency of individuals who have experienced a period of unemployment and have returned to full-time work.

    • To empower those who are willing and able to work but need assistance to become stronger job candidates and return to their field of employment; and

    • To strengthen our veterans as they return from active military service and transition back to civilian life.

    Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.

    so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

    EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!

    in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love
