The only answer to violence is tranquillity





In honour of all innocent people killed in senseless violence (priests and sinners alike) here is Randall Thompson's  (1899-1984)"Alleluia.". The only answer to violence is tranquillity. Like this music of unearthly beauty.
First performed on July 8, 1940 at the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood under the direction of G. Wallace Woodworth.

Performed by Octarium.

    1. Maybe it sounds silly, but this music makes the noise in my head quiet again. It calms me and comforts me.

      It really does.
