Merry Christmas!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart "Regina Coeli" (KV276)

Despite the dismal news and commentary I post on this blog, I believe in human aspiration - aspire to achieve, to become, something higher than lowly, earth-bound self. I am not a Christian, but when I hear the music like this I believe in the ultimate goodness and nobleness of human beings, along with the composer who wrote the music and the performers throughout the ages who have sung the explosively joyous opening chord to praise the "Queen of Heaven".
