Barber’s Agnus Dei

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.
