One of the most beautiful versions of the Agnus Dei you’ll ever hear

When you can, stop what you’re doing, close your eyes, and let this gorgeous hymn wash over you. Let it inebriate your spirit with joy and gratitude to the Lord Who loves you so much that He died for you to redeem you and save you from your sins. Dial the volume up and let this magnificent prayer carry you heavenward to the throne of the victorious Lamb who was slain from the foundation of the world. Praise Him.

    Very nice but I prefer the one sung by The Irish Priests in their first CD.

    The Dies Irae from this setting has the opposite effect of this Agnus Dei.

    Wait, you mean there's something more beautiful than "On Eagles' Wings" being strummed on a guitar? My parish's choir would beg to differ…

    I really don't care for it that much because it emphasizes the music too much and the words are stretched too much that their significance is lost.

    Beautiful and deep, a washing of the soul, a meditation like the waves of the sea bringing the life of the deep to the shore of my tired soul.

    Yes, Beautiful, Repetitious.A suggestion for those who are impressed: listen to AVE MARIA (sung by Andrea Bocelli) to Sergei Rachmaninoff's 'vocalese', and if you like that lush ethereal music which speaks to the soul, the entire Requiem of Gabriel Faure, or his Pavanne, or the "Kyrie" from the Kodaly Mass (Missae Brevis, or Louis Vierne's "Stele pour un enfant defunt" for organ. For those who need ref. Nos. of MP3 discs or the printed music, eMail Kingbroadcasting@att.net.and are available from your music supplier'

    Yes, musically astute. Wet blanket. Yawn.

    Yes, it is very beautiful. My favorite of Mr. Jenkin's however is "Benedictus." I agree that "The Priests" have done Agnus Dei and Benedictus very well.

    Beautiful music but we are unable to recognize the words. This is the problem with music in the Church today. Should we have music for the sake of music or music for the sake of GOD? Would the Lords Prayer have meaning if all you could recognize was the music?

  21. Patrick Madrid

    That's weird, Jay. I hear the words quite clearly. It's all in Latin, of course, so if you are not accustomed to praying the prayer in Latin, I could see why it might be less easy to follow. But I hear it all just fine.

    Also try Lauridsen's, from his "Lux Aeterna," if you haven't heard it.
