I Pray in Tongues

Well, sort of. I sometimes pray in a language other than English. Often it's German. Or Spanish Spanglish. This morning I prayed in perhaps my favorite Romance language of all, Latin. It's just a great language in which to worship the Lord! Here is my favorite vocal ensemble singing one of my favorite Latin motets, Ubi Caritas

The lyrics are given in the notes. They go like this:

I love this vocal ensemble for many reasons, not least their gorgeous collective tone, pure sound, wonderful breath control, and heavenly overtones. I am blessed to have my hearing to be able to listen to such beautiful and worshipful music. True bliss. My soul drinks it in like a horse that's been across the desert and has finally found water. 

Thank you, Voces 8.
