Alfred Schnittke

Some French railway related photos from the web.

Last night's dinner:

Spaghetti bolognaise with copious amounts of Parmesan on top.

Currently listening to:

Danish National Radio Choir singing Alfred Schnittke's Penitential Psalms.

 



    I
     'Adam sat weeping at the gates of paradise'

 

II
'O wilderness, gather me to your silent and gentle lap'

 

III
'That is why I live in poverty'

 

IV
'My soul, why are you in a state of sin?'

 

V
'O Man, doomed and wretched'

 

VI
'When they beheld the ship that suddenly came'

 

VII
'Oh my soul, why are you not afraid?'

 

VIII
'If you wish to overcome unending sorrow'

 

IX
'I have reflected on my life as a monk'

 

X
'Christian people, gather together!'

 

XI
'I entered this life of tears a naked infant'

 

XII
Wordless humming
