Breathing Deeply in Faith includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in B-flat Minor, Op. 9 No. 1 — Larghetto performed by Anton Kingsbury. This piece was the first of Chopin's works to be published in France, Germany and England. This nocturne was composed in part in Vienna and completed in Paris. This reflective work immediately confirms the character of the nocturne. The irregularity of the rhythmic patterns is a distinctive feature of Chopin’s style of ornamentation that continues to find varied expression in all his nocturnal works. This piece is dedicated to Marie Pleyel, the wife of publisher and virtuoso pianist Camille Pleyel.
