I recently discovered Vox de Nube. It has been a very long time indeed since I have listened to music that has so washed over my soul. I felt my heart simply open and leap to the heavens from which these inspired songs seemed to pour. I have never experienced anything quite like what I felt upon hearing Joa Bolendas’ two songs – Praise to Mary/Glory be to you, O Christ and Vater Unser (Our Father). It was like hearing Love. And, I went back for more (several times – this is the first album I can recall since my early 20s where I actually listened to it 3 times in a row, nonstop). St. Brigid’s Prayer brought tears to my eyes. There are several of Hildegarde’s hymns, rendered with exceptional beauty, St. Bernards homily to Mary, “Star of the Sea” and much, much more.
This is heart-opening music – I hope you can hear it also.
