What a blessed way

to spend the last day of Holy Advent!  Pr. Gleason lent me a DVD of Advent music from J. S. Bach performed at the Benedictine Monastery in Melk conducted by Niklaus Harnoncourt.  Beautiful and amazing.  What a delight - the fifth evangelist simply does not ever disappoint.

Stift Melk? And you have a problem with OSBs? Gott hilf mir. Seitlich.

They were founded out of Stift Lambech. Both are Austrian Congregation, as in within the Benedictine Confederation, the current head of which, Notker Wolf, is a Christian Rock guitarist performing with "Feedback".
