Happy Beethoven's Birthday!

For a change of pace, I would like to celebrate Beethoven's 238th birthday today with this posting of one of the most beautiful of all compositions he ever wrote, after he had become completely deaf: the Benedictus from the Missa solemnis, op. 123. Find a quiet moment when you can listen for ten minutes straight, settle back in a good chair, close your eyes and be transported.
