    Classical piece from Brazil

    Hi everyone.

    I came accross this great sounding classical song. I don't understand the language (which I suspect to be Portuguese) but I think its a Christian song.

    If there anyone who understands the language, please kindly share with us the general meaning of the song (you are free to go into details).

    Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYEmVsy2ZKI

    Lovemore Nanjaya.

    I believe this is from a Cantata Called "Evidence of Grace".... Here is the link to a performance of it in 6 sections. Not sure where in the cantata this some you mention is located..so you can listen to the whole thing.. NOt that bad upbeat and somewhat modern.

    I'm not surprised you liked it. I enjoyed it so much, I played several times over and I still go back to it once in a while.

    Lovemore Nanjaya.
