Sabaoth occurs in the old Latin mass. I think in the Sanctus, but it's been a long time since I sang one. (If you can find liner notes for Beethoven's Mass in C Major, that will have it, because that's the mass I sang.) I don't think malacoth occurs in the main liturgy, but it may have shown up in High masses or requiems or something... liner notes for other religious pieces might have it. -- Elyse Grasso The World of Cherani Station Cherani Tradespeech
