Thank you CD. That was beautiful not to mention uplifting. I have never taken Mahlers music seriously until now.

Y'all are very welcome :):):)

I sang that piece with a chamber choir when I lived in Europe back in the '80s and have loved it ever since. It certainly got me firmly into the "Mahler Camp".
