It is the abbreviation for the Latin, “Anno Reparatae Salutis Humanae” which means, “In the Year of the Reparation of Human Salvation.” Why? Because “Anno Domini” just isn’t quite hardcore enough for Ann Barnhardt.

The amazing thing about this spare and haunting piece of music is its utter simplicity of melodic structure and basic harmonic progressions. The melody is no more than a scale - drawn out - with each tone getting a broken chord of three perfectly spaced tones, each time resolving in the tonic in the bass. Yet it is absolutely lovely in execution. It is the most heartfelt of prayers, bereft of words, accompanied by silent tears.
