Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences

Lifting Spirits

with 2 comments

Amid the glut of dramatic economic distress and virus fears in the news every minute, there continue to appear glimmers of calm and inspiration. I can’t add any words to enhance the wonderful a cappella collection of student voices from Rome singing a Crosby, Stills, & Nash song that has been in my repertoire since the early days of my acquiring an acoustic guitar. They deserve your full attention.

Hat tip to Howard Rheingold for pointing me to this gem.

Claim a few minutes from the calamities of your day to sit and enjoy this. It is a worthy distraction.



I’m going to find it difficult to sing this song alone from now on after having watched them.

  1. Just beautiful. Our neighbors in Boston are modeling ourselves after Italy and singing from our windows into the courtyard each night at 7. We have now added a second song and do a kids song each day, too. But this video is precious and brought warmth to my heart. Thank you! Sincerely, 97.1.
