I was fascinated by all of the different music, and I thoroughly enjoyed the livestream. I found the story of the Ugandan Jews to be especially interesting. Thanks for a job well done!

As a Jewish convert to the Catholic Church, I still very much enjoy the music I grew up with during Chanukah, so thank you very much for your broadcast, hopefully i can hear it online. God Speed, Charles Fischbein

Can we listen at another time to the performance if we cannot listen at 7PM?
