This"Passion" Chorale is assembled from seven or eight harmonizations Bach did for the "O Sacred Head Now Wounded" chorale. The plaintive and poignant Agnus Dei is from late medieval England. I donŐt know the composer of this traditional Israeli folk dance, Erev Shel Shoshanim, which I learned at a Sacred Circle Dance.

This is followed by an instrumental medley of two typically beautiful inspirations by Cuban singer-songwriter Silvio Rodriguez, Unicornio and Rabo de Nube. It is offered here as a prayer that one day the U.S. government will discontinue its policy of inflicting hardship on the Cuban people and instead invite Silvio to play the White House. Para Amarnos con el Mundo ("To be in love with the world") was sung by the brother-sister duo Guardabarranco, who I was lucky enough to hear perform in both the U.S. and Nicaragua. While I did not meet Salvador, I did get to chat (and later correspond) with sister Katia -- who wore an "I Love Chopin" t-shirt, by the way. The Josquin is of the chanson on which Narvaez wrote his Cancion del Emperador, perhaps a generation later. (They are performed back-to-back on my Guitara Illuminata CD). "Wotan's Farewell" (from the end of Die Walkure) I first arranged in memory of my German grandmother, after her death 27 years ago. I recently re-discovered it and revised it for this collection.
