Andreas Willscher (b. 1955) — The Angel with the Viol (from Momenti Francescani) (2016) for organ

"Momenti Francescani" (15 Franciscan Moments) (2016) is a set of musical meditations for organ on scenes and stories from the life of St. Francis of Assisi (ca. 1181–1226) and his friends and early followers. Most of the stories and images are taken from the Fioretti di San Francesco (Little Flowers of St. Francis).

“Now while this thought was in his mind, suddenly an angel appeared to him in surpassing glory, having a viol in his left hand and a bow in his right. And St. Francis stood in amazement at the sight, the angel drew the bow once across the strings of the viol, when the soul of St. Francis was instantly so ravished by the sweetness of the melody, that all his bodily senses were suspended, and he believed, as he afterwards told his companions, that, if the strain had been continued, the intolerable sweetness would have drawn his soul from his body.” (Fioretti, 2nd Consideration)
