A simply gorgeous chant

Artist: Simone Martini

Please do go over to the YouTube site and listen to this:

I would give it to you here but the embedding feature has been disabled.

It is a monastery choir singing (i.e. not a professional group). Deeply evocative - at least to me it is.


  1. I love your blog and open it nearly every day. I particularly like your images and they often send me to Wikimedia Commons. This chant led me to the Rachmaninov one - the link is here - also so beautiful.
    Thank you for keeping my heart open.

  2. Thank you for your wonderful comment, Anonymous.

    Yes, this blog would really be impossible without Wimimedia Commons. I've learned so much myself while searching for appropriate images and exploring the works of various artists with whom I had previous been unfamiliar.
