Sunday is usually classical music day here on the SongoftheDay.ca blog, but I’ve changed things up this week, as the word “compassion” was calling out to me this Saturday morning. Compassion… felt not only for others, but also for ourselves.
So this morning I looked for music to symbolize this emotion, and found a lovely and calming piano piece. It’s appropriately called “Compassion,” and it’s by Canadian composer, arranger, conductor and actor, André Gagnon, who has been recording music since 1964. The piece comes from his 2016 album, Les voix intérieures (The Inner Voices).
Serendipitously, just as I was finishing writing this post, my sweety, not knowing what I was writing about, started listening to a talk by American spiritual leader, writer, activist and politician Marianne Williamson, on the topic of compassion. It’s out there… for all of us.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
Here’s the audio for the song from the André Gagnon YouTube (topic) channel:
