  • Circumplector

    Circumplector

    The title of this short, votive piece comes from a Latin word culled from Dieterich Buxtehude's aria "The most holy limbs of our suffering Christ"; roughly translated to English, "circumplector" means "embrace". The portion of the aria performed in the film is translated below:

    The nails in Your feet, the hard blows
    and so grievous marks
    I embrace with love,
    Fearful at the sight of You
    Mindful of Your wounds.

    Sweet Jesus, merciful God
    I cry to You, in my guilt
    Show me Your grace,
    Turn me not unworthy away
    From Your sacred feet.

    And Everything Is Going Fine

    I went into this totally unfamiliar with Spalding Gray. By the end of it, I felt like I had known him for years. Definitely worth my time, and everyone else's.
