Last Sunday at church, our choir sang Handel's "Thanks be to Thee." When the last note ended, I wished all could be silent for the rest of the day to prolong that beauty, to prolong the surge of gratitude.
In the spirit of thanksgiving and for your Thanksgiving pleasure, here's the piece sung in the original German ("Dank Sei Dir, Herr") by Werner Hollweg with the Vienna Philharmonic. Just click the link below to listen. In my opinion it's a good use of 3 minutes 12 seconds. If you're reading this via email, I hope the link is clickable, but if not, you may need to click through to the post online.
Enjoy! I'm thankful for you, dear reader.
