This instrumental song is different from the rest of the Girls in Trouble song cycle in that it is not inspired by the Hebrew Bible or Rabbinic Sources. Rather, it is inspired by the sculpture of the angel of Bethesda in Central Park, and her associations with healing and compassion. For more about the angel of Bethesda, see this entry in the Jewish Encyclopedia.
An instrumental song. Based on the angel of Bethesda, from the Gospel of John (New Testament!). Inspired also by Tony Kushner’s Angels in America and Central Park wanderings with my friend Filip Marinovich.
