Expressing Difficult Ideas in Music

This really is sublime.

The sorrow. The anguish. The lamentation. That bell, tolling, tolling; betokening the finality of things.

Then the music subsides from its melodic wailing to a blanket of strings, bowed in mourning, paying their last respects, gray-cloaked.

Then silence.

But not silence: No! you can hear the last fading of the bell, one last time. A final time, beyond the music.

A note of hope.
