    Just because something is "florid" does not mean it was written for the sole purpose that cantors are able to show off. Liturgical Music is (should be) written with an inclination toward the greater glory of God. If it happens that a good singer is required to execute it, so be it. Just because someone is a good singer and happens to sing well this "florid" piece of music, does not make them a show off.
