Another installment in my series of Music for Study and Meditation. This was played on an Alesis QS 6.1 and recorded directly into GarageBand.

This was inspired by a play I saw about early Christian martyrs.

Who knew those martyrs would be so inspirational?

Sarcalogos Testis? Means ..

It takes something deep to stand up for what you believe in today, despite ridicule. It must have been different again for those who knew their faith would be so tested that their mortal self would die. I'm sure they didn't feel they had a choice, yet I don't think they welcomed death either .. Vite e Belle.

Merry Christmas too smiley

"Sarcalogos Testis" means (I think) something like "test of Christ" or "suffering of Christ." It's Latin. I don't think any of them were excited about the pain they knew they would have to endure, but many of them faced it with confidence that Christ would see them through it and would be waiting for them on the other side of death's door.

Thanks for your comment, and a Merry Christmas to you too, ddball.

One of the things that convinced me to turn and walk in faith, was observing the transformation in the disciples... going from bumbling, dull, and cowardice... to standing in the town centers, and being completely effective... and all but one died for this life-changing thing that they all must have wittnessed... If they had fabricated this "story" they certainly wouldn't have laid down their lives for it... this had a huge effect on me... I owe them big time when I get home...

this would work well as a soundtrack for those extreme moments of truth

Powerful stuff, well suited to the subject matter expressed by your title, I think. I agree with Scott -- this would be a great "mood piece" in the right cinematic context.
