Agape-Agape - Popol Vuh [1983]

ἀγάπη, translated from classical Greek as love.  As Plato's crew would have it, love of spouse or family, or affection for a particular activity, in contrast to Philia - affection denoting friendship - and Eros, sexual affection. Appropriated in  Christian tradition as love of God/Christ for us common folk.

Late period Florian Fricke creates music meditative and devotional to love divine, unconditional, self-sacrificing, active, volitional, and thoughtful. Trance-inducing chant - apparently, Byzantine scales - and piano melody of devastating beauty.

Agape Agape, the Christ is near. Nice one Florian.

Wonderful, one of the few PV releases I don't have on LP. Fricke was a unique talent, can't wait to settle down somewhere quiet and hear this.
