Reverence and Sicilian passion are compatible, if not actually conjugate, expressions of the soul. Today we are fortunate to have our favorite tenor, Erasmo Aiello, raise his unforgettable voice in benediction over Church in the Forest and the surrounding landscape.
He is such a joy to listen to, such an accomplished artist, and his voice and spirit ring with Italianate authenticity, big surprise. EnJOY!
