I’ve never reblogged before, but it felt important. This symphony has its fingers all over my mood today, one of pain and reflection, and a little hope, as I received the news last night of the death of a 92-year-old friend.
Górecki’s 3rd is simply stunning. I’ve listened to it dozens of times over the years. Maybe I discovered it then because God knew I needed to hear it today.
Read the story behind the text of the Symphony (printed in the re-blogging I did of @Dover Beach). Stunning story.
Be still and enjoy.
