Those who loved A Sacred Place will also find rest in the soothing music of Longing Heart/Con Tim Khát Khao.

The first instrumental recording of Vietnamese liturgical songs
This groundbreaking collection by Brother Rufino is the first-ever instrumental recording of Vietnamese liturgical songs! Recorded primarily in Vietnam with some of the most renowned Vietnamese musicians, Longing Heart blends piano, flute and cello with traditional Vietnamese instruments to create a rich tapestry of gentle music suitable for retreats, prayer and meditation.

Featuring the exotic sound of traditional Vietnamese instruments
The instrumentation and melodies — written by Vietnamese composers — move the listener to feelings of transcendence. You'll notice especially the sublime sound of the dan tranh (a Vietnamese form of the Chinese zheng), the piercing quality of the dan nhi (a two-stringed fiddle) and the warmth of the dan bau (a single-stringed, mono-chord zither).

Calm yet deeply passionate music
Marked by a smooth, steady flow and Brother Rufino's tender, understated piano work, the music is calm, yet deeply passionate, expressing a yearning, a hunger and thirst for the divine.
