This music is absolutely spectacular.

I am listening to one of my favorite compositions for quartet and choir, “Darkness Into Light” performed by four angels known as the Anonymous 4, and the illustrious Chilingirian String Quartet. Together this “angel band” creates the most beautiful harmonies for the musical soul.

The Darkness Into Light collection is a series of 12th- to 14th-century hymns, all profoundly performed and interestingly varied in tone and use of voices. They impart to me the wisdom of a kind of ancient piety, an absolute purity.
