The building is in the Portuguese-Indian style. It tends to be quite gracious..

What interesting music! Still trying to decide what emotion it evokes. Other-worldly mystery without too much threat? I’m rambling.

I think it has those typical Philip Glass feelings of other-worldliness, constrained emotions and a certain beautiful bleakness. His technique of constantly repeating small musical phrases, almost like a Mandelbrot fractal, tricks us into an early sense of familiarity.
To me, this piece is the musical equivalent to an Anita Brookner plot-line..

I’m going to have to think about that…Ms Brookner certainly does ‘bleak’ very beautifully!
