Gaudete Sunday

Still unable to put my own thoughts into words, I share the words of Leonard Berstein, which Jerome spoke to me just before saying goodnight last evening:
This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.

Jerome's church choir performed the Pergolesi Magnificat this morning with strings and organ. I know each heart within those walls lit by the candles of hope, love, and joy, felt the balm only music can bring.
Wherever you are this heavy morning, perhaps your soul may be lifted by these amazing examples of making music.

  1. Such beautiful performances - so uplifting!
    Music indeed is balm for the soul.

    Thank you for sharing these, Sharon.
