Ave Maria, Bruckner, Live on Sunday

At last, here is the right file from Sunday, Madonna della Strada, Loyola University, Chicago, 240 singers: Ave Maria, by A. Bruckner, as conducted by Horst Buchholz. Again, thanks Corpus Watershed. This recording strikes me as historic and classic. Keep in mind that these are mostly amateur Catholic musicians. This is also forty years following the first "hootenanny Mass." If this doesn't sound like the entrance to the Promised Land, I don't know what would.

The people who were there will remember this moment for the rest of their lives. It might indeed shape the rest of their lives.
