Most of us have a special piece of music. A piece with touches the very depth of our soul and transports us far away from the stresses and pressure of our crowded lives. It may last just a couple of minutes, but to sit back with closed eyes as it wraps us in a soft blanket of peace and tranquility is a moment in time well spent.
Mozart died in 1791 before he completed his Requiem Mass in D Minor. One of the last movements he composed was the brief yet hauntingly beautiful Lacrimosa, my special piece of music.
So, what is yours?
