Summary:

Deep Compassion includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in A-flat Major, Op. 32 No. 2 — Lento. Long, gracious melody with a balletic middle section characterises this nocturne. It is a beautiful work of dreamy melody and majestic harmony. Simplicity of gesture is of the utmost importance throughout the opening section followed by a stormier, more chromatic middle section. Chopin's minimalist gestures of the beginning elope into generous expanding atmosphere of the nocturne's centre. Chopin dedicated this piece to Madame la Baronne de Billing.
