The Feast of All Saints

Today is the Feast of All Saints! As such, todays edition of TfT (Tunes for Tuesday!) is dedicated to great music and prayers used to commemorate this day. I also found a short video tribute set to a contemporary song that you may enjoy as well. And to round it up, a modern classic.

Let’s start this off with the great Latin chant version of the Litany of the Saints as composed by Pope St. Gregory the Great,
