CLASSICAL OPUS no. 98

Alan Hovhaness: “Prayer of St Gregory”, op.62b

アラン・ホバネス:「聖グレゴリーの祈り」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 4 minutes

Performed in warm, cushioned tones, this celestial, sinuous invocation in B-flat minor strides confidently with a pace of ancestral maestoso.  The modal version for chorale-like organ (or harmonium) features Wynton Marsalis’s distinctly melismatic playing.  But it’s also worth exploring the less fluid variant for strings.

A REFLECTION

The Armenian Grief is a shoreless sea,

An enormous abyss of water

My Soul swims mournfully

On this huge and black expanse
