Best Ignatian Songs: “Comfort, Comfort, O My People”

“Comfort, Comfort, O My People” is a lovely Advent hymn, based on verses from Isaiah 40.  This version is by the Ignatian Schola, a Manhattan-based vocal ensemble composed of Jesuits and lay colleagues. Thanks to Michelle Francl-Donnay for the pointer.  (Click here to watch the video on YouTube.)
