Edmund Jolliffe - The Garden of Gethsemane

The Garden of Gethsemane is a contemplative piece. It is based on the last night before Jesus is arrested, where he and his disciples are in the garden. They sleep whilst Jesus goes through huge inner turmoil. They are unaware of this and sleep on in the beautiful garden. Because of the nature of the music, it is hoped that the listener will drift in and out of the music, rather than concentrating intently upon it.
