    Thank you for this service to the People of God.
    For about two years now I have been drawn to the sound of the Chants and such music .
    I find it has added much to my prayer and times of devotion .
    The stillness causes my heart to sense the Presence of The Redeemer in a deeper way and more thankful way also .

    The words are very clear and even toned ( I have no knowledge of music apart from what sounds good to my ear and draws my soul Heavenward )

    May God continue to bless your efforts and may many find the joy within which it brings .
