Laudato Si: Musical Selections

Are you intrigued by the fact that there could be suggestions of musical selections to accompany the recent encyclical?  Read on!

The Archdiocese of Washington has published a study guide for the encyclical, Laudato Si (available here).  One of its suggestions for reflection is:  "Various composers have written musical pictures or poems about nature, such as Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, Smetana’s The Moldau, and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Listen to these works and describe what they say to you. What do you envision as you hear the music?"

On this summer Sunday following a holiday, can we take a few minutes to sit back and hear the music of nature?
