Bruckner's Locus Iste: Recorded June 2008. A beautiful rendition.
Translation: This place was made by God; an inestimably holy place. It is without blame.
Singing it in the beautiful College chapel, one can't help thinking it appropriate. Chavagnes IS a holy place, even if it is full of sinners. God bless. FMcD.
