I quote one of my former students, Catherine Peters, who writes: "Please join me in praying for the repose of the soul of Fr. William A. Wallace, OP who passed away on Tuesday evening (reportedly while praying compline with his fellow Dominicans; how beautiful!) Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace."
Another one of my students once composed a Canticle making use of the impressively technical vocabulary of Fr. Wallace in his book, The Modeling of Nature: The Philosophy of Science and the Philosophy of Nature in Synthesis (Catholic University of America Press, 1996), and the men of the Seminary choir recorded a CD of its performance of the piece, which I had the pleasure of sending to Fr. Wallace several years ago. He responded that he would like to see future printings of his book carry a CD, which delighted the seminarians.
