Best Ignatian Songs: Gabriel’s Oboe

by Jim Manney

This is the second time  “Gabriel’s Oboe” has appeared in our occasional “Best Ignatian Songs” feature.  (The first time is here.)   The occasion is the opening of a musical based on the movie “The Mission,” a great film inspired by the Jesuit missions in South America in the eighteenth century.  The musical opened this week in Seoul.  It will go on world tour to China, Japan, Italy, and New York.

“Gabriel’s Oboe” was an instrumental piece in the movie.  Here, Daniele Gatti sings it.  (If you can’t see the video, click here.)

I love the instrumental piece “Gabriel’s Oboe” from the movie. Yo Yo Ma has a version of it on his CD of music that composer, Ennio Morricone. It is haunting and prayerful and makes my eyes fill with tears.
