Guy Mendilow: "Simple Gifts"

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward


A survey of sacred music from around the planet to mark Thanksgiving, our favorite holiday because it is so incurably infested with gratitude. We also sampled some new releases, and some instrumental music. Judging by the phone calls, listeners ears really perked up for the new Eliseo Parra album, Le Ayer Manana. Happy Thanksgiving!
