    Silouans Song is a core piece of the Part repertoire. In my view, it is reminiscent of his choral pieces to the benefit of the piece. It is also less dissonant than a good number of his other instrumental pieces. It is also more "atmospheric" and for some may be...

    too slow moving. Having said all that, this is a piece worthy of inclusion in more orchestras' season.
