    One of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, it's a good way to start Ash Wednesday (and my first day of NO EGGS until Holy Week!):

    Nice song! Thanks for sharing.
    No meat days are hard for me! As I am a big meat eater.

    Beautiful & haunting music. Is there any significance to it?

    This year the first full moon after the spring equinox falls on Friday April 6. (usa northern hemisphere full moon)
    counting back 40 days would bring us to Monday February 27.

    I almost put spam on my eggs this morning
    might go to church after work

    Lent is a time of penitence and the words of Psalm 51 are used here asking "Lord, have mercy on me." Whoever wrote the Wiki article on the Miserere did a good job too.

    I would assume you can lose weight too by eating almost all fish and veggies........not sure about anything else.
