dona contest

One of the songs I sometimes sing to you at bedtime is Dona nobis pacem.

I just heard a thing on NPR about Yo-Yo Ma and a version he recorded of the song. He put it on the internet, and asked people to collaborate with him. He choose two winners, and will meet with them and record their versions with him. One winner was a hand-bell chorus, the other was a heavy metal band from Vancouver. Cool, right?

I heard this story too and thought it was great.
I love the handbells!
