With the passing of Jazz great Dave Brubeck, who, like me, was convert to the Catholic faith, who else's music am I going to post for our Friday traditio? Well, it's a few days early in honor of Brubeck. Since we celebrate Las Posadas in The Cathedral of the Madeleine just prior to Christmas (i.e., still during Advent), I thought I would post a piece from his extensive catalog of sacred music, Cantos para pedir las posadas. It is an amazingly lovely, quiet, and even contemplative composition:
A great musician, a spiritual and gentle man, has gone to be with the Lord. Requiescat in pace Dave Brubeck. We'll always have your music. Thank you. It should be a hip-happenin' Christmas and New Year in heaven.
