A frustrating afternoon-trip to Vienna, where I didn’t succeed in getting anything done except these two photos.

music for Easter Monday – Aria “Süß und rein muß der Christen Passah seyn” from the Easter Cantata “Weg mit Sodoms gift’gen Früchten”, TWV1:1534 by Georg Philipp Telemann

by ada

Telemann wrote a whole cycle of cantatas for the liturgical year and published them in a two-bands collection, under the title Der Harmonische Gottesdienst. I chose this aria from the cantata written for Easter Sunday in 1725 for my last post of the Easter series, because I think Telemann was a genius and I like how this short piece of music shows the purity of the new life after the feast of the Resurrection.

P.S.: I don’t really like the singer’s voice, but well, nothing is perfect on Earth. I’ve already learnt to accept the need of making compromises in life.

silent night

by ada

Today I visited the Stille-Nacht-Kapelle, a memorial on the place of the original church where the Christmas hymn Silent Night, composed by  the village teacher Franz Xaver Gruber, was first sung on the Holy Eve of 1818. It’s located in the small city of Oberndorf, just a half-an-hour train ride from Salzburg.

beyond good and evil

Snowchurch, with the (somewhat melted) Angel and Devil, right before the university dormitory. It came to existence during the night, by some creative students, under alcohol influence, I guess.

If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.

Taizé prayer at Ursulinenkirche. No matter where I live, in which city of which country, visiting Taizé prayers is a stable point in my life. It is every time different, depending on the place it is held and the people it is organised by. This can be both good or disturbing. This time the prayer was strange, rather false in tuning and very, very loud (and not Taizé-like at all). Being a silent and reserved person, who instinctively avoids every loud situation in life, I ended up with a bad headache and some serious doubts about my future visits in this church.
