Man of La Mancha

I listened to the soundtrack last week and then again yesterday, getting all weepy both times.  I had liked Don Quixote, then the Broadway soundtrack in the 60s, but the music took on extra force when it was used as background and illustration points when we went to Marriage Encounter around 1980. They used the idea of Quixote's vision of Dulcinea remaking her to not only express the grace that a husband and wife should grant to each other, but to illustrate the grace that God extends to each of us (which was absolutely in Cervantes' intent). 

"You spoke to me, and everything was different...and you looked at me, and you called me by another name."
