In The Night Hours | Piano Instrumental [Episode 84, June 13, 2018]

In The Night Hours – Piano Instrumental

“In the Night Hours” is a contemplative, relaxing piano instrumental composed by Fred McKinnon.   This episode is #84 of the “Worship Interludes Podcast” which is an instrumental podcast for prayer, meditation, and relaxation.   This piece is in the key of G-minor and has a beautiful, yet haunting melody.

Personally, I’ve been battling bronchitis and a low-grade fever this week.   As a result, I’ve been pretty tired and some of the medicine has kept me up at night.  Because of this, I’ve felt pretty tired and somewhat uneasy.  I’ve always disliked the way I feel on certain medications and look forward to being free of this infirmity.

Sitting down in the studio today,  this opening theme came to me immediately.   I loved the way it moves up and down and has a diminished chord that adds a bit of tension and helps translate the uneasy emotions I’ve felt this week.

My hope is that as you listen you will be able to relax and sink deep into the emotion of this piece.

    We received news last night of the death of a special woman in her mid-40s, a sudden and tragic cardiac event took her life at a hospital after she had gone to a clinic with chest pains. No family was with her at that point and so she left this life totally unexpected and alone except for medical personnel. In the Night Hours has touched me greatly. It is just what I needed as it meets me where I am in this sad and grief-filled moment.

    1. Susan,
      I’m so sorry to hear this terrible news. That is so tragic and I cannot imagine the hurt and grief. It touches me deeply that you’d take the time to let me know about this. I’m so glad to know that even in a really tough situation like this, the music was able to be used to bring peace. Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know.
