    Your blog is quickly becoming one of my most favorite places to obtain music. The hymn was beautifully performed. I wish I could have returned the favor, two Mass’ ago, we had a guest who sung a very beautiful rendition of “Come O’ Come Emmanuel”, I wished I recorded it. His voice was deep, sort of like Andrea’s.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the music – music is one of my great loves alongside Biblical studies, sci-fi, and the other things I tend to blog about. Have I recommended Korngold’s Violin Concerto and Atterberg’s Symphony No.2 since you’ve been reading? Those are two of my all-time favorite pieces of music (the symphony mainly because of the opening and closing sections of the second movement).
