PIE JESU (Jackie Evancho)

Our Traditional Music Page features traditional music and hymns composed over the course of two millennia, often by some of the greatest musical minds in history.


This week's selected piece is an incredible performance of "Pie Jesu," a traditional Latin funeral hymn, by Jackie Evancho, on (shockingly) America's Got Talent! Ms. Evancho was only 10 years old when she performed this.
