Paul Mealor Ubi Caritas

Nora found the Paul Mealor Ubi Caritas piece on YouTube. Thank you, Nora! I also love the Maurice Durufle Ubi Caritas, which my choir has done. It was written in 1960, and has a very different feel. It’s nice to sing about amor in church!

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exultemus, et in ipso jucundemur.
Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.

Where there is charity and love, God is there.
The love of Christ has gathered us as one.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us honor and love the living God.
And from a sincere heart let us love one another.

This is a creepy house in Cambridge, but I don’t think this picture quite captures the haunted feel it had. This is the kind of house kids dare each other to go up to.
