A Jazz Anima Christie

Jazz pianist and music arranger, Mary Lou Williams became Catholic in 1958,  and in her absolute delight with finding the Faith she composed a swingy version of Anima Christie using the Cardinal Newman translation. It's not for Mass obviously, but I like it even though I've never cared for the Cardinal Newman version. I knew about Mary Lou as an artist but I never knew she was Catholic. Thank you  David L. Gray for posting about her on your Catholic Tube site.
