Charity and Vision

Two double-digit seeds in today’s poll:

I heard a really nice setting of Ubi Caritas Saturday night performed by the Ames Chamber Artists. Ola Gjeilo is a fine young composer who draws on plainsong and a modern sensibility of harmony. While many music lovers are drawn to a central European anchor for Western music (Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Wagner) I find the ambient spirituality on the periphery (Norway, Ireland, Latvia, and even Italy) to be much more inspiring.

And speaking of Ireland, our other tune is capably rendered here by an American icon of singing.
