From the recording Musica Lyra
Despite what sorrows, strife and regrets the tortuous, random progress of life can bring, all this can be almost heroically transcended with stoic meditation, through which the acceptance of all adversity can bring, will in time, sooth the turmoil of the mind and thus enable us to thrive and overcome whatever negative energy can shadow our precious experience of the irreducible enigma of our own consciousness.
The meditative, philosophical quality of this track is conjured up by the intensely introspective ancient Greek Dorian Mode. This mode, misnamed the Phyrgian Mode by scholars during the earlier part of the Middle Ages, features the equivalent intervals as E-E on the white notes of the piano.
Perfect for expressing philosophy through music, in “The Republic”, Plato himself states this particular musical mode was the only mode which had true moral value.
