Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Book suggestions:

Fun With Composers "Just for Kids" by Deborah Lynn Ziolkoski

Dvorak in America by Joseph Horowitz (for older kids) -- I have not read this myself but for the first few pages, you may want to pre-read

Two Scarlet Songbirds by Carole Lexa Schaefer


I'll be back with more... currently listening to Slavonic Dances -- such a delight! It's piano for four hands. Perfect to lift spirits on this very gloomy Cincinnati day.

I'll try to have an excerpt up on my blog later.

Thanks, Stef. We are going to a Dvorak concert/dance this week and I wanted to do a little more study on this composer and voila--you did my legwork. Thanks!
