Hymns to the Silence

Nothing to say except to recommend it. If you don't know this album, by Van Morrison, you should. "Just a Closer Walk With Thee," an American hymn done with a jazz riff by an Irish rocker; what more could you ask for?

And "Be Thou My Vision," performed with the Chieftans. It is, alone, worth the price of admission. Not to mention the absolutely beautiful titular piece.

Two discs, in all. Think of it as the soundtrack for Lent.

"Take me back....take me way, way, way, way back...and the music on the radio..."
