I have included a link to a youtube video of Gregorian chant. I have been thinking about what I could share that could be both uplifting, peaceful and healing. I found this to be all of those in addition to more. It reaches the octaves of light –

on a side note the word Octave is actually also the name of the first stanza/movement of the Sonnet and the second/last stanza of the Sonnet is the Sestet. If you are overwhelmed with all that is happening in the U.S. with COVID-19, or looking for something to distract yourself and you like learning about new things, I suggest you check it out on Wiki. It’s pretty neat; search the word, Sonnet. Once you understand the Form of the Sonnet and the mechanics of it your experience of reading a Sonnet may change. Finally, for those really interested in the Form of the Sonnet, the transition from the Octave to the Sestet is probably the most important transition.

Here are the beautiful Nuns of St. Cecilia’s Abbey, with the link:
