Listen to the Music!
The familiar becomes new in this Spanish language version of one of Mary Baker Eddy’s most beloved and well-known poems, “Feed My Sheep”. The lyrics linked below also include the poem in its original English, but even if your knowledge of Spanish is rudimentary, don’t be deterred from enjoying this beautifully performed and orchestrated song; after all, music is the universal language, and Julia Wade’s always outstanding delivery communicates emotions that transcend speech. Taken from Julia’s Spanish CD, Alabado sea Dios, Apacienta mis ovejas is one in a collection of thirteen gorgeously crafted sacred hispanic songs from around the world sung passionately in Spanish by Julia. The music in Alabado sea Dios comes from South America, Spain, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and the United States, with two brand new compositions, this being one of them, from Peter Link. It ranges from the haunting “El amor” to the playful “Al despuntar;” from the stately “Pueblo santo y elegido,” to the joyful “Gracias con alabanza.”
