More Good Friday Musical Reflections

Music takes us where words can't. As we ponder the Mystery of our redemption this day, here are some more selections I want at my funeral (alas, Lenny Bernstein, Mahalia Jackson and Nat King Cole  have already gone to God so he can't conduct and they can't sing them at my funeral!), Mozart's Ave Verum and the great spiritual "Steal Away to Jesus."
