The Apotheosis (Ave Maria)

from Starbirth - Generation Alpha by Bryan A. Crumpler



A prayer for blessings in the skies....

"The Apotheosis" is an apocalyptic tone poem, a 7 minute 24 second tale of light cast into darkness, the birth of the moon and earth, stars being ripped from the heavens, and its dust, giving rise from ashes to life, up until the end of days.

At the heart of the work rests a simple melody, borrowed from the well-known rosary prayer "Ave Maria," which takes shape rather amorphously throughout the work. It lies deeply buried in clusters of uncertainty from beginning to end, representing not only a tonal but personal battle between concepts of faith and science, humanity and divinity, pulchritude and ethereality and, ultimately, creation, destruction and the ascent to the divine.
