Description
A delicate and moving composition for a string trio of violin, viola and cello. It was written in reaction to Theo van Gogh's assasination. The Netherlands was in great turmoil at the time and I felt - without wanting to choose anyone's side - that all of mankind could do with a little prayer.

At first, I put the composition in a drawer, thinking it wasn't any good. But then a gave it to my musician friends, and they loved it, giving A Short Prayer for Man a wonderful premiere at a benefit concert for the Tsunami in 2005.

This composition can be downloaded for free. If you like this piece, you may want to check out my other pieces for string trio (violin, viola, cello) here on MusicaNeo:

The included sound file is an actual recording from a rehearsal, which always has more expression in it than a computer recording. However, there are a few rough edges in the performance.
