Of Ill Deeds, poetic thought by George-B (the smudge and other poems page)


Of  Ill Deeds, poetic thought by George-B
(the smudge and other poems page)

The answers are within protected by the shell – viscera
life is  so strong so death is not thought of-
hatred makes victims somewhere outside,
in  coward devotion, hatred makes drum-roll to tormented minds: 
cowardice attacks
the innocent

weak
feeble
the sick
the innocent – how else to hurt
life
hope
a smile
a tear of joy
but by denying their right to exist.

So mortal of spirit in hatred collects
pain for redemption,
immortality
promised by the  master of hatred and lies- promises of  golden stars,
untouched things…
the hater of life maladjusted,  the exception
is promised things by the master of lies.

-George-B.

Carl Orff – Sunt Lacrimae Rerum – Singphoniker Münchner – July 10, 1995



Performance of a selection from Carl Orff‘s “Sunt Lacrimae Rerum“, men’s choir (TTTBBB) and soloists (TBarB), by the Singphoniker Münchner on July 10, 1995 – Carl Orff’s 100th birthday, at the composer’s gravesite in the Klosterkirche Andechs, near the composer’s home in Dießen am Ammersee

The inscription on the memorial plaque reads, “Summus Finis”, “The Highest Goal”

The title of the music is from the Aeneid, line 462 of Book I – “sunt lacrimae rerum” – “There are tears for things”

The lyrics are from The Book of Ecclesiastes 8:15

Omnium deliciarum et pomparum saeculi brevis finis.
Mors, dolor, luctus et paror invadit omnes. 
In hora ultima peribunt omnia: tuba, tibia et cythera, jocus, visus, saltus, cantus et discantus.

Of all delights and pomps of the world the time is short
Death, pain and mourning invadeth all.
At the last hour perisheth all things: the trumpet, the flute and the lyre, joy, laughter, dancing, singing, and harmony.

Die Singphoniker are (thanks to Daniel Schreiber for this information):

Alfons Brandl, Hubert Nettinger, Ludwig Thomas- tenors. Berno Scharpf, Gunnar Mühling- baritones. Christian Schmidt, bass.
