Arvo Part Berliner Messe 

Paula Kimper
Where Everything is Music

Poetry by Rumi
(see text  below)

Samuel Barber  Adagio for Strings

Benjamin Britten Hymn to St. Cecilia

Where Everything Is Music 
Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

Don't worry about saving these songs!
And if one of our instruments breaks,
it doesn't matter.We have fallen into the place
where everything is music.The strumming and the flute notes
rise into the atmosphere,
and even if the whole world's harp
should burn up, there will still be
hidden instruments playing.

So the candle flickers and goes out.
We have a piece of flint, and a spark

This singing art is sea foam.
The graceful movements come from a pearl
somewhere on the ocean floor.
Poems reach up like spindrift and the edge
of driftwood along the beach, wanting!
They derive
from a slow and powerful root
that we can't see.

Stop the words now.
Open the window in the center of your chest,
and let the spirits fly in and out.

- from The Essential Rumi, Coleman Barks: HarperSanFrancisco, 1995.
