Where did the music at the beginning and end of the podcast come from? Where can I find more music like it?
The music you hear at the beginning and end of each reading was composed by me specifically for this podcast. In my professional life I am composer and producer here in Los Angeles; at the beginning of this project, I wrote and recorded the bumper music that you hear.
Because this was a single composition done for a specific purpose, there's no band or commercially available recording that I can point you to. I appreciate the positive reaction to the intro music – if I ever do a more extensive recording like it, I'll be sure to let you all know.
The words being sung are “Dona Nobis Pacem”, a phrase from the Latin Mass which translates roughly as “God, grant us peace.”
