Bocelli and Bach: Ave Maria

Not only is this musically quite lovely, but the video is also beautifully made.

A preamble, a modern hymn, and a prayer

The singer/guitarist in this video is, I believe, a priest.  The hymn is "Cry of the Poor," written by John Foley, SJ in 1978.  

There is a preamble where the singer invites us to prayer; the hymn begins at approximately 1 minute, 40 seconds, into the video.

I needed to hear this hymn tonight.
