Nerdworld Soundtrack: "Non Nobis, Domine"
Here's something beautiful for your Sunday listening pleasure. The hymn dates back to the 16th century at least, and this version was part of the soundtrack for Sir Kenneth Branagh's glorious 1989 film production of Shakespeare's Henry V. Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, after all, and we could all use a break from the usual nonstop political madness. (And it is "savage breast," not "savage beast." Look it up in the original William Congreve play The Mourning Bride of 1697 if you don't believe me!)
