Ave Verum Corpus

This piece by Mozart is so beautiful, on this sunny November day in Ottawa, I thought of including it into my blog. Just returned from a program of school visits with the National Gallery of Canada where volunteers present works of art from the NGC to school children ages 7 to 12. It was fascinating to see the interest of the children in the works presented. Their comments, often very perceptive, showing a great sensitivity to art and what they are looking at.

The NGC every year in Ottawa alone will do presentations to 40,000 students with the help of its volunteers.
