    No it is called 4mins 33secs. Hopefully this more dynamic version with a choir will be available in NZ

    I believe it could also be chanted with the following example mantra:

  • JeffreyJeffrey Veteran

    They open doorways that I thought were shut for good
    They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu
    They build up my body, break me emotionally
    It's nearly killing me, but what a lovely feeling!
    I love the whirling of the dervishes
    I love the beauty of rare innocence
    You don't need no crystal ball
    Don't fall for a magic wand
    We humans got it all, we perform the miracles

    Mera nasim-e tu bayad.
    Sabah koja ke nist?

    I need your breeze.
    Where is not the morning breeze?

    In India the dervishes teach by song and dance. Just as the air moves from stillness and silence ... Are they our music or are we their attunement? Where is the lost chord that binds us?

    I didn't know how to delete my double post, so now it is it's own sentence.

    I'm not a big David Mathews fan, but this is a great meditation on mortality.

    Chas & Dave.

    Chas Hodges (The Piano-player of the duo) sadly died of Cancer on the 22nd of September. Sadly missed, their music is incomparable, unique and immediately likeable. This song has to be one of their finest pieces.

    I watched Olafur Arnalds last night in Manchester, incredible. If you ever get a chance to watch him then you absolutely should!

    Closed out with this one, the first he ever composed when he was a teenager:

    I came across the Esbjorn Svensson Trio some years ago, and unfortunately the lead musician Esbjorn Svensson died in a small plane crash in the Baltic. So the Trio broke up just as they were starting to become a big name, but a lot of their old concerts are still on YouTube. I particularly like this set from the Leverkusener Jazztage.

    I looked out across / The river today / I saw a city in the fog and an old church tower / Where the seagulls play / I saw the sad shire horses walking home / In the sodium light / I saw two priests on the ferry / October geese on a cold winter's night

    And all this time, the river flowed / Endlessly to the sea / Two priests came round our house tonight / One young, one old, to offer prayers for the dying / To serve the final rite / One to learn, one to teach / Which way the cold wind blows / Fussing and flapping in priestly black / Like a murder of crows

    And all this time, the river flowed / Endlessly to the sea

    If I had my way I'd take a boat from the river / And I'd bury the old man, I'd bury him at sea / Blessed are the poor, for they shall inherit the earth / Better to be poor than a fat man in the eye of a needle / And as these words were spoken I swear I hear / The old man laughing / 'What good is a used up world and how could it be / Worth having'

    And all this time the river flowed / Endlessly like a silent tear / And all this time the river flowed / Father, if Jesus exists, / Then how come he never lived here

    The teachers told us, the Romans built this place / They built a wall and a temple, on the edge of an empire garrison town / They lived and they died, they prayed to their gods / But the stone gods did not make a sound / And their empire crumbled, 'til all that was left / Were the stones the workmen found

    And all this time the river flowed / In the falling light of a northern sun / If I had my way I'd take a boat from the river / Men go crazy in congregations / But they only get better / One by one / One by one...

    Heard this playing in a story and fell in love. (Don't watch the video if you're epileptic.)
