Agnus Dei

I turned on the radio this morning and heard Barber’s Agnus Dei, the Lamb of God set to perhaps my favorite music of all the Adagio for Strings Op. 11.    It is a very intense and emotional piece, as though grief was distilled into music.  It is piercingly beautiful and perfect for Holy week.
