Erbarme Dich.

Erbarme dich,
Mein Gott,
Um meiner Zähren willen
Schaue hier,
Herz und Auge weint vor dir
Bitterlich.

Just close your eyes and listen.

It is one of the single most moving pieces I know. There are many renditions. It rarely fails to move me.

I can write many or few words about pity, empathy and compassion and maybe one day, I will. Today I’ll let the music do the talking.

What did you encounter in this music?
