Thanks Giving in March

As it may become clear here over time (if not already), one of my favorite of all of Beethoven's achievements--in fact, one of man's--is the "Heiliger Dankgesang" movement of the opus 132 string quartet.  Rather than rave on, for now I will simply offer you this remarkable 55-minute talk, with live music by the fine St. Lawrence Quartet,  about the movement by the well-known speaker and radio host/guest, Rob Kapilow.  And here's the "Hymn of Thanks Giving" movement on its own.
