I loved watching William and Kate's wedding. It was a very welcome relief and temporary escape from all the sorrow that our neighbors and too many others across the region are dealing with right now.
The outpouring of concern for my family and friends.....all the emails, text messages and phone calls have meant more than you can know and have touched me deeply. We are fine, but each day we learn about another community that was devastated, or someone who knows someone that has been found dead or is still missing, or a family that is left with nothing.
So it was nice to experience a little joy and beauty in the pageantry of the royal wedding. The music was very uplifting to me and I thought this piece, Paul Mealor's Ubi Caritas, was especially moving and peaceful. I hope you enjoy it too.
