This was originally written for cello and guitar
but a version for flute and guitar is
also available
Kichijiro is the equivalent of Judas
in the novel "Silence" ( 沈黙 (Chinmoku)) by Shusaku Endo
The thoughts of Kichijiro are reflected in the music
especially in the Japanese pentatonic equivalent of the
old carol "Oh come all ye faithful"
which is repeated in a somewhat wistful and yet sardonic way
by the guitar and the cello (or flute)
It also reflects Endo's own views on
Christianity, which he never felt comfortable with.

This music was inspired by the book 沈黙 (Chinmoku - Silence)
by Shusaku Endo (a historical novel based on events in
Japan in the 17th century - the title refers to the silence of God
in the face of suffering)

Some say that Kichijiro (キチジロー)
is an equivalent of Judas but his way of thinking
is quite different:

He simply cannot accept that the Japanese Christian minority of his time should suffer
just because they have adopted the foreign religion of Christianity.

He gives up his faith and betrays the main character, the missionary Rodrigues.


The thoughts of Kichijiro are reflected in the music especially in the Japanese pentatonic equivalent of the
old carol "Oh come all ye faithful" which is repeated in a somewhat wistful and yet sardonic way by the two instruments.

It also reflects Shusaku Endo's own views on
Christianity, in which he was brought up but with which
he never felt comfortable.

The sound sample here is an electronic preview.
