Agnus Dei set to Barber’s Adagio for Strings

While preparing to record the latest episode of The Break, Father Roderick was playing some music. Among the songs he played was Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, a work I love. I know I’m not the only one in that, and in the chatroom at SQPNconnect I learned that Barber also used the Adagio as a setting for the Agnus Dei. It’s hauntingly beautiful.
