On the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels
This beautiful song honoring our angels is sung here by Mario Lanza, one of the greatest tenors of all time. The music for this rendition was arranged by -- of all people -- Harpo Marx, a talented musician in his own right. The amazing and tragic tale of the artist, Mario Lanza can be found here. A biography of musician and comedian, Harpo Marx, can be found here.
