Between the pages of the world…

Some music for the solstice as the light returns…

This is the 4th movement from Tongue of the Invisible (2011) performed by Omar Ebrahim (baritone) with musikFabrik conducted by André de Ridder, recorded in June this year at the WDR Funkhaus in Köln. It’s a moment of hushed stillness in the hour-long journey of the music.

Between the pages of the world

The rose flowers for a day only
Before the bud is pressed
Between the pages of the world

(Text by Jonathan Holmes, after Hafez)

The complete work can be heard online in a radio broadcast from WDR3 on 25 Jan 2012.
