The Cajun musical group L’Angelus has been selected to perform at WORLD YOUTH DAY in Madrid, Spain in August and will make appearances on at least two stages. The group is scheduled to appear on the main stage twice, both times on days when Pope Benedict XVI will also address the young people.
The group will also play concerts and provide music for Mass at the 10,000 seat arena that will host all English speaking pilgrims. This stage is called the Love and Life Stage and it is sponsored by the Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus. L’Angelus is looking to raise funds to bring their entire family to Spain and have put up a website concerning their music and appearance.

Way back in 2008 L’Angelus was passing through Colorado Springs and called us to see if they could stop by and do an impromptu show. We said yes and were treated to an hour of great Cajun music. We’ve been carrying L’Angelus CD’s ever since and can’t recommend them enough!
