A Prayer of William Penn

Frederic Chopin

More Information

Description:

A prayer of William Penn includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in C Minor, Op. 48 No. 1 — Lento. An example of progressive music in classical repertoire of Chopin's nocturnal collection. This composition intensifies not through ornamentation, but through a new textural background. Like the unfolding of a tale the middle section is still greater grief told in an agitated recitando; celestial harps come to bring one ray of hope, which is powerless in its endeavor to calm the wounded soul, which sends forth to heaven a cry of deepest anguish. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.
