Music for Tax Day: De profundis
Having a professional musician in the family means I am introduced to music I might not otherwise find. Son Jeff recommended a piece by Arvo Part, an Estonian composer, called Fratres. It's a good piece. But also, while nosing around YouTube, I discovered Part's setting of Psalm 130 (De profundis - out of the depths I cry to thee). Here it is, sung by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir. Organ played by Christopher Broadbent-Bowers, percussion by Tonu Kaljuste.
I know it's still Easter, but this is a moving, meditative, and appropriate piece for income tax day.
