Join Alison Young for an hour of lovely music, as she hosts the nine men of Cantus as they talk about their current project – The Four Loves: 

“Love has been the inspiration for artistic expression since the dawn of time. The idea is so complex that the Greeks broke it down into four different kinds: romantic, familial, friendly and unconditional love. Cantus regards our greatest and most fragile gift in The Four Loves.”

Airs Thursday, November 22 at 1:00 p.m. Described by the Washington Post as "a boatload of talent," Cantus bring their distinguished voices to a national audience for a vocal celebration of gratitude on Thanksgiving Day. Alison Young joins Cantus, one of America's best all-male ensembles, for singing and storytelling about gratitude and what it is to be thankful.
