Summary:

David's Prayer includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in B Major, Op. 32 No. 1 — Andantino sostenuto. Simplicity of this nocturne's opening is contrasted by very dramatic and original ending. This arrangements is illustrative of Chopin's desire to make the music speak. This nocturne's rather characteristic design and melodic contour prepares for the unexpected towards the end. Chopin dedicated this piece to Madame la Baronne de Billing. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.
