In other words

My supertalented editor Jane Tufts sends me this amusing email:
I was reading an article about Bach's Mass in B Minor and came across this sentence. You can imagine what the previous sentences were like if this is the "In other words" sentence.

"In other words, the work is among those that most openly manifest, in its almost exaggerated monumentality (certainly inappropriate for liturgical use) and its unfathomable many-sidedness, the concord of ideas, the harmony of gestures and the rational pact of alliance that composes every internal contradiction, every external dissension."
