Words Couldn't describe this

The images are breathtaking and the beauty of the violin is unparelled imo by any other instrument. Truly gorgeous. So raw, so pure, so true, so sad...

Is this what It sounds like when angels cry?

Makes you wonder. I picture myself in a vast room, filled with books, entangled by God as I dream. Filled with every human experience yet only wanting to know that He knows... just how much we need Him. Just how much we hurt.

Anyway, enjoy :)

I can definitely relate to that impression. It was indeed a sorrowful sound. It reminded me of the Erhu - a Chinese "violin"-ish instrument.

The video you linked gave me the impression of the sorrow that all creation has. If creation's sadness could be portrayed in a single song/instrument, that would be pretty close.

Listen to the Erhu, and see what you think. It's the second instrument in this video.

Dear John-Michael:
I had the privilege of seeing a featured Chinese musician play the erhu, a couple yrs. ago.  She was a guest of the BayAtlantic Symphony Orchestra.  If I remember correctly, she was one of only a few who had mastered the instrument. It was mesmerizing, to say the least.  I wondered if I'd ever get the chance to hear it, again.  Thank-you for posting this link.

That was beatuiful! ....

~ Serene, powerful, sublimely and almost imperceptually joyful, controlled and powerful...not sad at all!

Gentleness is great strength under power....the power of Love, not the love of power.

Hi JohnMichael

There must be a love story to the music that you have posted. It feels like there is....~ :)...an all too familiar story...

Hi Arc ;D

Unfortunately, there is not a love story to accompany this music. I love instrumental music that moves a person. Eastern music seems to still have life in it whereas Western music (to me) has grown stale and stagnant. That's just my personal opinion though. :)

To me, the Erhu has a hauntingly sweet cry, and it draws me into the music.

Hi Deblynn

You're most welcome. :) I'm glad to see a fellow Erhu lover here.

Blessings,
John
