You are going to really enjoy Libby's playlist! It is filled with beautiful melodies and exciting moments while at the same time offering selections that truly have the potential to heal. While observing a few of the YouTube comments, I was struck that so many people have definitely been listening to this music during the past few weeks as they cope with our situation. These pieces have connected with Libby and so many others, and there's a good chance you will find them meaningful as well.
All best wishes,

Someone suggested to me that I find a theme for myself for the school year. The theme came out of this song and it’s chorus. “Even in the madness, there is peace.” Still fitting for now.
This movement has captivated me since I first heard it. It’s simple yet dramatic with layers of dynamics and instrumentation. Calms me down every time I hear it.
I have always like this song and I love A Capella. The human voice can do so much and is so beautiful. I saw this version live last summer and it was amazing.
My husband and I are approaching our 20th Wedding anniversary. This song reminds me that there are seasons to everything and love is still strong.
