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. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.
