Virtual Carmelite Choir celebrates the 500th anniversary of St. Teresa of Avila's birth

This choir is singing with a purpose! The order of the Discaled Carmelites are singing to honor 500 years since the birth of St. Teresa of Avila.  It's part of a so-called "virtual choirâ?composed of Carmelite friars and nuns from all over the world. They are accompanied by the Teresian Orchestra of the Cathedral of St. James in Seattle, Washington.  To bring these voices together in one choir, they all recorded themselves singing. "Nada te turbeâ?, which translates to "Let nothing disturb youâ? is the choir's first song. It's based on a poem written by Saint Teresa of Avila.    The second song is a version of the Salve Regina. Sr. Claire Sokol composed both melodies for the occasion. The videos have received thousands of hits on YouTube since it was first posted. YJA/JAE Virtual Musicians Group FA -PR Up: YJA
