The (Blessed) Mother's Day Video



Also here.

(A project I've been working on: the music is from one of my former students, and the images are ones I took from the university at which I work.  More details on the YouTube site.)  Some more music from the singer here.

Happy Spiritual Mother's Day!  And happy May, the month of Mary!

Absolutely beautiful music! Can you tell me about the sculpture at the 1:30 mark of the video?

Glorious. Music is wonderful, reminds me of a Hildegard von Bingin chant.

Meredith--agreed; the music is great. I added the singer's myspace page to the post.

Do you teach at St. Mary's?

I am from Rapid City, SD. Our diocese sends to the seminary on campus. Having visited several times, the statue at 23 sec is one of my favorite Marian statues I have seen. I am planning on incorporating my pictures of it into some desktops someday.

Watching the rest of the video -

I love the mosaic in the chapel on the third floor of the seminary.

Also, is the Pieta the one from right outside the seminary? One of the most beautiful pictures I have was taken by Carlos, a seminarian there, of that Pieta with a butterfly and perfect lighting.
