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.)


  1. Wonderful..I used this video clip with our Antigonish Diocesan Pastoral Centre staff for a mini Advent reflection. Thank You!

  2. What a fabulous song! Is the music available? We have just started a small singing group in our Parish, and this would be a wonderful piece to sing together.
    Thank you so much.

  3. Thank you for posting this Advent reminder.
    The pictures are worth a thousand words and the melody, beautiful.
    “Comfort.Comfort, O My People”…..
