Wine's saintly music

I'm not sure what it was
that made me think of pairing music with wine,
but  Vinsanity's miracle had something to do with it.
My first thought was Vespers!
Being a Protestant
and loving both wine
and vespers seems oxymoronic,
but as I was finishing my supper with a glass of Pinot Noir,
and feeling ready to retire, it came to me.
Off to Google-land, and lo and behold I found:
With thoughts of heaven, harmony, harvest, and sleep I bid thee good night!

  1. Oh my, I don't have enough fingers or toes to count tje times I have visited Buckfast Abbey. The vespers are so beautiful, thanks for finding them.

    1. VG: Thanks for the link! I didn't think of this post, but now that I read it again I do remember it, and wonder if subconsciously I was influenced by it. Well, so be it and we're all better for it.
