Inscription (sheet music)


“Inscription” 4 easy pieces for classical guitar.
Inscribed on the fingerboard of a 16th-century Viola da Gamba made by Kaspar Tieffenbrucker one can read this text in Latin:
Viva fui in Silvis
Sum dura occisa
Securi dum vixi tacui
Mortua dulce cano

English translation:
I was alive in the forest
I was cut by the cruel axe
In life I was silent
In death I sweetly sing

To me, those words are very moving. The thought that the wood was silent while a tree but when used in a musical instrument, it sings. It inspired me to compose one piece for every line in the keys of 1. B-Minor, 2. G-Major, 3. C-Major, 4. G-Major
