Catapulting into Classical

A headlong leap into music, history, and composing

Ubi Caritas


Hello!  I hope you are all well and safe.  The world is a troubling, dangerous place right now.  Let’s take care of ourselves, and each other.

I’ve been searching for superlative soothing music.  We all could use that now.

Here you can see Kings Return singing composer Ola Gjeilo’s setting of the ancient Latin hymn Ubi Caritas.

You can find more videos from Kings Return here.

A more traditional setting, but one that actually dates from the 20th century, was written by Maurice Duruflé, and you can hear the Kings College Choir sing it here.


Wishing you well, more music soon!

  1. You’re hitting me where I live. I think the pacing on this performance of the Durufle is better: I feel like King’s College is feeling peckish or something. And whoa, the Gjeilo setting, and hallway acoustic performance, bravo.

  2. Ubi Caritas = Where charity is. Yes, we need that.
