The Beatitudes - another approach

Hello together,

I composed a piece of music I would like to share with you. Also I would be very happy about your comments and thoughts.

The piece is called "The Malmö Beatitudes". The text is from a sermon Pope Francis hold two years ago in Malmö, Sweden, during his visit.

The text is not easy at all. For me it was very challenging. Why new Beatitudes when there are the Beatitudes given by Jesus in the bible. Is it a new "translation" by Pope Francis?

How "remaining faithful while enduring evils by others"? How "looking into the eyes of the marginalized"? Thinking longer and longer about this text, I needed to try a composition of it. And it had to be a quiet answer.

With my own words as my description of the musical piece I tried here: I think the Malmö Beatitudes are neither ment to be a "translation" nor are they provocative. They are a meditation and a prayer about the question what christianity and being part of "the one community in Christ" could mean in the 21st century with all these questions, dissonances but also the deep joy and peace which we can't teach ourselves.

I hope you like it!

Music: A Gift Straight from Heaven

Other than ability to sustain life [ :) ], music is God's greatest gift to humankind. Music is the only thing of heaven we can fully experience on earth, and the only thing of earth that will carry into heaven and eternal life with us, and that's really amazing to me, because that makes music something that will have no end.
