A Blast from the 90’s for Wednesday


Yesterday was “Radio Gaga”; today is Lady Gaga!  Long-time readers know that Lady Gaga is pretty big around here, so no suprise!  This is her duet with Bradley Cooper from the new version of A Star is Born.  Enjoy!

The Prayer of St. Francis


The “Prayer of St. Francis” was not composed by St. Francis of Assisi, but derives from a World War I era prayer card.  Nevertheless, the prayer is certainly in the spirit of St. Francis, and it is one of the most popular prayers for peace in modern times.  Sarah McLachlan’s rendition is, in my view, one of the most beautiful and moving musical settings of this prayer.  On this, St. Francis’s feast day, enjoy it and take it to heart.

Re-starting the Music

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve had limited computer accessibility of late.  Additionally, I’ve had lots of things going on in my offline life.  Thus, the weekly music and quotations have fallen by the wayside.  Things have smoothed out a bit–not completely, but somewhat–so I’m going to post a video a day, starting today and continuing for the next week (during which I’m off work a few days) as a sort of makeup.  I may get extra quotes up, too, but that remains to be seen.  I may not be in black, but I am back.  Meanwhile, enjoy!
