‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’ (St. Saens)

This gorgeous hymn, composed by St. Saens, sung here by Libera, is good for any time of the year. It’s like a clean wind from God, a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and the dirt. Turn up the volume!

As a sidelight, it was the basis for the theme music in the movie, Babe (the one about the pig)…  which, oddly enough, is the second time this week that Babe has come up in relation to Christmas.
