My friends from Christ in the Desert Monastery in Abiquiu, NM, visited "The Today Show" this morning to promote their new album, aptly called "Monks in the Desert."  (Funny enough, I have a simpler version of their lovely chants, which I listen to quite frequently.  The prior had sent me a CD after he and the abbot were our guests at America House.)  In any event, you'll enjoy this surprising performance of "Alleluia Lustus Germinabit," which is, needless to say, not something you see every day on MSNBC, or anywhere for that matter.

Thanks for sharing that. You are right, not something you expect on the Today show. The music was beautiful, but watching them chant was amazingly peaceful.

I was able to spend a long week in silence with the monks and enter into the rhythm of their life in August 2012-there the Holy Spirit blind-sideded me.  The music of their lives echoes a divine harmony well beyond what is CDable.
