Music to rescue humanity's honour



For me the existence of Pablo Casals is a source of joy. He is one of those artists who come to the rescue of humanity's honour ~ Thomas Mann
Pablo Casals was born on December 29, 1876 in El Vendrell, Spain. The film above of him playing J.S. Bach's Suite No. 1 for Cello Solo was made at the Abbaye Saint-Michel-de Cuxa, France, in 1954. My recent homage to Casals was inspired by hearing his sacred choral music live in France last summer. There is a video of his O vos omnes here. Read In Search of Pablo Casals here.
