The Most Beautiful Sound in the World

So reader’s digest has a fill-in-the-blanks contest on their page:

“The most beautiful sound in the world is…”

Napaisip ako ah. I was tempted to link the Philippine Madrigal Singer’s  rendition of Randall Stroope’s Rivider le Stelle in the European Grand Prix 2007 in which they bagged 1st place.

There is no better sound in the world that speaks and sings of hope and reaching the divine. The Italian text is an excerpt from Dante Alighieri’s Divina Comedia.

Once Again We Beheld the Stars

But soon it will be night and we must rise to the stars.
Now is the time to depart this place
for we have seen and experienced it all.
Keep moving! Return to paradise.
The wings of hell’s monarch are heard nearby.
We must leave quickly,

but soon it will be night.
I climbed toward paradise with no thought of looking back.
I passed through a small opening
and finally saw heaven and the supreme light
and beheld once again the stars.

    Cel, you are a true artist! Proud of you that you are flying on your own wings now. Many more horizons for you to fly by with awe and wonder and joy. Am amazed at how you can reflect on the happiness that a simple chance jamming with fellow musicians on a street in Italy can bring about. For indeed you captured the moment with your video and your journal. Thank you for sharing that. AND KEEP ON WRITING! (Singing is a given. Thank you, MADZ!)
