QUERCUS: "We are looking up to the nature and life, we are looking up to the pipe organ, to the instrument of thousand voices. Symbols of passing time and eternity. Touches of aeons.
We feel the need to celebrate both of these elaborated mechanism, nature and organ.
In the temple we find nature, in the nature we find the temple. Both are transcended by great symphonic harmony.
There is also melancholy in our praise, pain and sadness of non-return are parts of our admiration.
How helter-skelter and endless the being can be".
