Music This Week



I'm sorry I'm unable to share this beautiful seasonal music with you in person. Hopefully you'll have some time over the next few days to listen (it's about 40 minutes in all). A quick Google search will provide any information you'd like about a particular composer, melody, or text. In fact, if you have children who are home from school, this is an instant project to enjoy for many days - just take a piece or two at a time.

I do hope you'll find this to be of some comfort before we're all together again. Watch for another collection at the beginning of Holy Week.
