Another Credo

I have just got Helene Grimaud's recording of the Credo. I bought the French version of the CD, which has Bach's Prelude in C Major as a bonus track at the end. After the cacophony of the Credo, the addition of the Bach reinforces the feeling that after the nigredo experience - truly the 'dark matter' of the universe if anything could be - the only way back to wholeness and balance is through stillness, letting things be as they are. Or as Rilke once said, 'Trust in things. Things will never let you down.'
