We’d love for him to be our cantor.
Pacheco spoke about his experience recording his new album in an interview with DeseretNews.com:
“This album stands apart from others I’ve done. Those have come from the heart, but these songs are tapping into the deepest part of my heart. My belief in the Lord, my gratitude and devotion, have resulted in the creation of this album … one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done.”
“Be Thou My Vision” is one of the oldest traditional hymns from Ireland. The text is a prayer attributed to early Christian poet, Saint Dallán Forgaill. His name, Dallán, means “little blind one,” a nickname he earned after he lost his sight from intense studying. “Be Thou My Vision” is most often sung to an anonymous Irish folk tune known as Slane.
