Liszt/St. Francis

19th Century composer and piano virtuoso Franz Liszt (frahnz list) was a deeply religious man who sometimes wrote music inspired by his faith. He wrote two pieces for piano dedicated to St. Francis; we'll hear one of them, Legend: St. Francis Preaching to the Birds, along with a brief explanation of the music by Tom Mastroianni, president of the American Liszt Society.
