The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Music in Twelve Parts

Philip Glass' magnum opus (IMHO).

Probably the greatest work of the 20th century (and probably for much more than that). This is a piece that can change the way you listen to music. Both a theoretical exercise and spiritual journey, its length of over three hours will transport you to a new level of sound and feeling.

Though Philip Glass' avant-garde works are not for the faint of heart, I truly pity those who cannot appreciate the genius of such a powerful work.
