Limpid: Limpid variously means clear, lucid, transparent, simple, and serene. This broad range of tranquil connotations is supported by its shared etymology with the rhyming lymph and nymph - lymph referring to water and nymph referring to water sprites. All this peaceful water is from long ago before pollution and tsunamis.
The peasants' faces, so grim a moment before, softened under the influence of Mozart's limpid music like parched earth under a shower.
