Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2900
claque, repurpose, banshee, pecksniffian

At the preacher's every pecksniffian intimation of their faith's incomparable succour of the needy, those gentry comfortably ensconced in the box pews, the same parishioners who at home would keen like banshees at the serialised demise of a fictional waif, chimed in complacently right on cue, like some well-drilled theatre claque repurposing its wordly hurrahs to pious laudation, while taking ever firmer hold of their purse strings.
