Just found this and it’s wonderful! Perfect accompaniment to my post-lunch walk around the block. Gorgeously sung! Would be great if it continued past Lent (fingers crossed).
A delightful Lenten gift.
Thank you for this music and contemplation for my Lenten Journey. Your voices blend in such a lovely way. God bless this endeavor.
