More experimenting with a piano, layered over guitar tracks. What makes this complete track unique is the absence of drums. Like my previous instrumental, my aim was simplicity.
Translated, kyrie eleison is an old Christian prayer associated with liturgical worship and Jewish prayer, which means: Lord, Have Mercy. At once and the same time, it’s a trusting and humble call, full of the joy of expectation at the coming of God’s promised response.
‘Jesus told his next story to some who were complacently pleased with themselves over their moral performance and looked down their noses at the common people:
“Two men went up to the Temple to pray, one a Pharisee, the other a tax man. The Pharisee posed and prayed like this: ‘Oh, God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, crooks, adulterers, or, heaven forbid, like this tax man. I fast twice a week and tithe on all my income.’
“Meanwhile the tax man, slumped in the shadows, his face in his hands, not daring to look up, said, ‘God, give mercy. Forgive me, a sinner.’”
Jesus commented, “This tax man, not the other, went home-made right with God. If you walk around with your nose in the air, you’re going to end up flat on your face, but if you’re content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself.”
Luke 18:9-14 (The Message (MSG)
May we, in our own hearts, heed the zeal of the tax collector and a stand guard against the self-righteous fanaticism of the Pharisee.
Sidenote: Just a reminder about sound quality. At the moment, I’m only work with audacity; a free mixing software, my laptop, an amp, an app and my guitar.
