This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Music thanatologists use harp and voice to minister to terminally ill patients. They are specially trained musicians who offer comfort and try to match their rhythms to the rhythms of patients. They meet in a group to practice music and Gregorian chants and discuss their experiences.
