    Honestly…this is a holy work of art. Even moreso than anything painted by Michaelangelo in? the Sistine Chapel.

    They were taking pictures of the? resonance.

  6. arianaalioth says:

    Dr. Mealor, speaking as a musician, this piece of music is the only piece of music that comes close to describing? the mysteriousness of the intimacy I had with someone one time, with my indisputable other half. It is hauntingly beautiful. I even bought the SATB print of it to secure in the most honored place in my lifetime collection of music. You, sir, are truly good. Highest Regards. -Valerie Roeder, RN, BSN

    The arrangement? of Ubi Caritas has the constant shimmering of dissonance and resolution, with the basses rumbling below…. awesome.

  8. SavedSMVElove says:

    How wonderful! This is a beautiful arrangement. I’ve sung the arrangement by Durufle. I wonder who? wrote this arrangement.

    GGrrrrrrrrrr! Damn those clicking? cameras.

    Sir, I could not get enough of this piece at the time of the wedding. Revisiting it again, again I am taken up into the heavenlies. Tomorrow I will be teaching on Psalm 133 regarding Christian unity. We will play your interpretation and read the English translation of Ubi Caritas et Amor. Thanks for being a blessing through? your work.

    It is moving, but it’s just so slight it looks like the frame remains the same. Look? at the kid at the bottom left hand corner; he gradually disappears.

    Hey, show? some respect!

  18. Toujourmike says:

    At 1 min 38, there’s the Choir and a screen with? a carving passing in front of the Choir. If you concentrate on Choir you will see neither the picture angle nor the size of the image changes , but the screen moves in front. Does anyone know how this is done?

    Late this August, I hope my ….other half….comes over to visit me, and when? we finally give in to making beautiful love together, i’m going to make sure this plays at some point. If it played over and over for 3 hours it would be so …….. [speechless]…he makes me speechless…. he is surely the first and last, he is surely my other half, I am surely his slave in God forever; I was, I am, and I always will be…
