JFF

"Just for fun" from my friend Robbie...



This is deeeelicious music for the soul.  If you listen very carefully about almost 4 mins into this piece, you will here a familiar tune that we sing at Mass:  The Thaxted melody of "O God, Beyond All Praising" is beautifully conjured by the violins.  It all reminds me of what the psalmist composed in the 8th Psalm:

"O Lord, our Lord how majestic is Thy name in all the earth! Thou whose glory above the heavens is chanted by the mouth of babes and infants, Thou has founded a bulwark because of Thy foes to still the enemy and the avenger.  When I look at Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars which Thou hast established; what is man that Thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him?  Yet, Thou hast made him little less than God, and dost crown him with glory and honor. Thou hast given him dominion over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea.  O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Thy name in all the earth!"

Somebody just asked me recently what kind of music I like.  That's hard to nail down, but I'm pretty sure that this music is straight from heaven. Just a small sampling of what God has in store for us, I think.
