Ave Generosa - Hildegard and Gjeilo

A wonderful setting of Hildegard's chant. The composer is my favorite of the moment, Ola Gjeilo, and the singers are Sjaella. It's rather long at 4 minutes and 36 seconds, but nothing by Hildegard is short. Entrancing listening as I'm having a second cup of coffee from my Hildegard of Bingen mug (jealous, aren't you?). Learn more about this Leipzig-based ensemble from their website at Of course, those beautiful voices are matched with good looks and youthful spirit. For the scoop on Ola, go to

Lord, Give Me Just a Little More Time x2

I'm posting two versions of this wonderful Gospel song. The first is perfect for your college or church choir, nice and smooth with some hand clapping at the end.The second is the rough-edged version recorded in Alabama with Bernice Williams leading the singing and lots of heart. She was the daughter of Dewey Williams, leader of the Wiregrass Sacred Harp Singers and a Heritage award winner.
