What does it mean to give thanks?

Over the centuries, countless composers have turned to music as a way of showing thankfulness. They have written songs giving thanks to God, to country, even to the Pope. This hour on Harmonia , we’re feeling thankful, and we’ll hear a variety of music both sacred and secular that expresses this sentiment.

And in a featured recording by the Choir of New College, Oxford, we’ll hear music in thanks and praise for St. Cecilia, the patron saint of musician.
