Anthony Girard (b. 1959) — Still Birds among the Roses (2002) for organ

French composer Anthony Girard (b. 1950) was born in New York City (USA) and was educated in Paris at the Sorbonne and the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique. His work draws largely on poetry and mysticism. If purely musical stylistic infuences such as the modern French school, Gregorian chant, and the roots of polyphony, the music of India or minimalism, cannot be excluded, the real key style are his literary and spiritual affinities: Rumi, Meister Eckhart, Whitman, Tagore, Proust, Péguy, Rilke, Segalen, Krishnamurti, Tzara, Michaux, among many others. According to Girard, poetic mediation allows a distancing from the concerns of writing and any inclination of “personal” expression, thus favoring an emotional truth, and an opening on the “Unknown.”
