The words of the Agnus Dei from the Mass set to the music of Samuel Barber, specifically his Adagio for Strings, was a good find on YouTube for me tonight…so good that it had to be shared. The coming together of Barber’s marvellous musical score, the words of the liturgy, and the unaccompanied voices of this choir was a true balm for the soul.

A presbyter (priest) of Maitland-Newcastle, and a student of life and of the world with many eclectic interests, I am always seeking to understand the world around me. I am engaged in inner city parish pastoral ministry based in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, and seek always to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God and to assist others to do the same in their own way. With extensive experience in preparing for and executing liturgies and other ritual events, I am privileged to serve the broader Church through serving in a number of liturgical roles for the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.
