The beauty, it may be there only in sadness.

Sunset view from my cabin is sorrowful.
The clouds are singing "Erbarme dich, mein Gott".
The trees are lamenting the ugly society.

The beauty, It may be there only in Sadness.

"St. Matthew Passion" of JS Bach
Based on the New Testament "Gospel of St. Matthew"
In which depicts the Passion of Jesus.
"Erbarme dich, mein Gott" is the 39th song,
St. Peter, who betrayed Jesus be against his will
Lament sung by contralto is deep contrition.

In contralto Eula Beal and Yehudi Menuhin (link) playing the violin,
Bach's St. Matthew Passion "Erbarme Dich, mein Gott"
Yehudi Menuhin's violin solos is wonderful.

Yehudi Menuhin is reminds me of my childhood that had learned to play the violin.
There was a picture of Yehudi Menuhinwho visited Japan in the teacher's room.
Every time my left arms are tired and fall was noted teacher "look at the picture."
It was a picture which Yehudi Menuhin played by the neat posture.
I was age of 13 in 1951.
