I find that a disadvantage - I end up singing and trying to get it 
right.   Particularly the bit in "lamma ragashu goyim" where the tenors 
and Basses are in a canon. I have sweat blood over that passage, both 
the words and the rhythm.

And whatever you do - don't play organ music that you know the pedal 
part when driving.  "Playing" a long note firmly with your right foot is 
not a good idea :-)
