Sheet Music: Score
Compassion : for string quartet, piano, double bass, percussion and solo voice, a song cycle in seven movements based on a collection of ancient Hebrew and Arabic texts STUDY SCORE / Nigel Westlake, Lior Attar.
Compassion" draws from the rich worlds of Islam and Judaism to present a collection of profound and poetic messages surrounding the idea of compassion between human beings. The texts are largely a collection of poems, proverbs and songs that give us an insight into such wisdom. Their similarities are immense and their universality is undeniable. Far from the misguided commentaries that have so often steered humanity away from the true enactment of compassion, these texts affirm that attaining a greater sense of compassion is an ultimate goal, and letting it guide our actions is the ultimate wisdom.
