Thaïs is an opera, a comédie lyrique in three acts and seven tableaux, by Jules Massenet to a French libretto by Louis Gallet, based on the novel Thaïs by Anatole France. It was first performed at the Opéra Garnier in Paris on 16 March 1894.
God speaks to us not only through the revelation of creation in front of us but through his gifts to us. Here yet again is music that is in and of itself ethereal! It is a little over 6 minutes long.
Take a few minutes and listen and observe what this music does for those playing it and those listening! Enjoy!
