I am a classical musician through and through, classically trained, on scholarship as a piano performance major back-in-the-day, so I usually bring some form of the classical ‘sound’ and genre to my concerts. Here I am rehearsing Maurice Durfle’s “Ubi Caritas” with some good friends. The translation:
Ubi caritas et amore, Deus ibi est. Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor. Exsultemus et in ipso jucundemur. Timeamus et amemus Deum vivum. Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero. Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Amen.
Where charity and love are, there God is. The love of Christ has bound us together in one. Let us rejoice and be glad in His love; let us fear and adore the living God, and let us love Him with a pure heart. Where charity and love are, there God is. Amen.
