Bach’s Aria of the Goldberg variations, 6 times slower.

Last scene of Mizumono

Of course this isn’t as good as what Reitzell did, but it’s the closest I can give you. I used Glenn Gould’s version of 1955 and slowed it with paulstretch in audacity, which slows the track but conserves the pitch. (And I cut it at about 5 minutes otherwise it would have been too long.)

“No ill-being, no cause of ill-being, no end of ill-being, and no path.”

“But if I tell you that I’m feeling depressed, I don’t want you to tiptoe around me. I’m just letting you know so that you understand that whatever it is that is dragging me down isn’t on you. That’s not your burden to bear. And even your just being around me and treating me like I’m still just another normal human being with a correctly calibrated emotional spectrum helps. Treat me like I’m me, not like I’m going to shatter at every moment. That helps more than you could ever know.”
