Sunday Music - Out of the Deep

A piece from Rutter's Requiem needs little introduction...enjoy the cello's rich tones on this chilly morning.

Lynn,
quietly enjoyable but doesn't stir my soul. You are right, the cello is rich.

Fred,

I think the delightful thing about music is never knowing what will grab at your soul when you listen. I was listening to this while reading the latest at Thinking Anglicans...somehow the sadness with the occasional surprise of vocal harmony grabbed me.

But Rutter's Requiem doesn't quite speak to me of death. Perhaps more along the lines of strength in adversity?

(If everyone likes all the selections here, I figure I'm not doing my job with the Sunday music :-) but I'm glad you appreciated the cello!)

Fabulous. So hopeful. Too bad there isn't screen-space for the whole score (I really like to watch the score as I listen) - and then again, maybe it was the artist's intention to present it this way. Thanks, Lynn.

SAD always gets worse until the light once again conquers sometime around about April (which is the "cruellest" month).

I took part in a live performance last year. It is a lovely piece.

I sang it, back in seminary (Union in NYC): loved it. I can still hum certain parts.
