  4. Dieter,

    Wow! Beautiful. I forwarded this to my brother, a minister in Reno, NV. He sends daily Meditations to his congregants once or twice a day. I hope he can use this to inspire the peace and tranquility it inspired in me!

    That is a really lovely piece of music! Thanks so much for sharing. I have listened to it at least 5 times already. Do you have any connections with the musicians or bands in Belgium? This Hans fellow is superlative on euphonium.

    Marvellous work performed with profound sensitivity.

    I am curious about which might be the euphonium and mouthpiece being used.

  7. My brother sent this out to his fellowship last night. It explains the context and for the lovely performance and the message behind the music.

    "Good Evening Community fellowship!

    Luke 1: 26-29: In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you."

    My brother, Doug, sent me this meditation. It is a setting for wind ensemble and euphonium of an ancient prayer to Mary. The visual is of a sunrise over a shrine to Mary located in Senorbi on the island of Sardinia.

    Within the piece there is a lovely interplay between the euphonium and an english horn. The duo sounds to me like a conversation between Gabriel and Mary.

    Deus ti salvet Maria - lyrics translated from Latin

    God save you Mary
    who are full of grace,
    you are the source
    and the stream of grace.

    The Almighty God
    has been with you,
    therefore He preserved you

    Blessed and praised,
    most glorious of all,
    Mother, Daughter and Bride
    of the Lord.

    Blessed is the Flower
    which is fruit of your womb
    Jesus, Divine Flower,
    Our Lord.

    Pray to your Son
    so that all errors of ours
    to us, the sinners,
    may He forgive.

    And may He give us the grace
    in life and in death
    and the blissful destiny
    in Paradise"
