Music truly is good for the heart. This music feeds our souls! Thank you Adfero!
A little piece of heaven on earth. Beautiful.
So very Majestic and Beautiful ...thanks for sharing !
Heavenly! Thank you for posting it!
Indeed, Adfero, I've been listening to Mozart all day. It was Palestrina with Victoria and other Renaissance composers yesterday. My spirit has reached the heavens today. God has given us the means in this life, albeit temporary, until we can get to Holy Mass once more that is.
I feel like I'm the only one here who would like J.S. Bach (Because he's protestant, maybe? But I'm only presuming) While I do like plainchant, I tend to dislike any Renaissance flamboyance that came after. But the Baroque... Now, there is something special.But please, please, please listen to Bach's St. John Passion... Especially set to the film Passion of the Christ. It stirs the soul, truly!Savor the layers, the instrumentation -feels- anguished, as is appropriate for the topic of His Passion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDV94Iti5ic
Bach? Bach is amazing, especially his organ music. You are not alone.
Bach, ah, Bach (M.A.S.H. reference!)
Thanks for the link, Ioannes.
You are right, we can't live without Bach, Joannes Martialis!He has to be in heaven on account of his music - so pure...ah what mystery...but Our Lord has sorted it all out by now, I'm sure...:-)This piece is very beautiful too, Adfero. Thank you very much.
A traditionalist priest friend once confided to me (with not a little bewildered exuberation!) that he was convinced Bach had been a 'secret Catholic'! "He HAD tobe!", he exclaimed. Such is the eternal music of the great Bach!
Also, Bach wrote a Mass setting. It is in every way superior to the banal cookie cutter compositions we hear in the er, "Ordinary" form. Of course, I may be preaching to the choir here.Did anyone ever notice how similar "On Eagle's Wings" and "Here I am Lord" and "One Bread One Body" and Julie Gold's "From a Distance" along with countless of other "Church Pop" music are to each other? It certainly fits the "3 Chord Song" formula/concept.
Oh, here is an additional "The Other Modern" style of O Salutaris Hostia by Ēriks Ešenvalds.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U-fERimjL4
