Title/Theme: “Ground”; Key/Structure: C Minor
Comment about this piece: The melody and harmony of this piece are directly taken from a piece often attributed to Henry Purcell, although there is some indication it was written by his contemporary William Croft. A “ground” in its technical sense is a repeated theme – often in the bass (called “ostinato”) – but can also be an entire theme. This piece originally dates to the 1600’s and would have been performed on harpsichord at a faster tempo and with substantial ornamentation. I find the melody uniquely contemplative – almost hypnotic. Perhaps appropriate as we think back on the past year and what the future holds. Always repeating. Never quite the same. I hope you enjoy this solo piano version of “Ground”.
