Program Notes

There are several spiritual meanings attached to the word Light found throughout history and literature. Lights conveys both an absence of darkness and a quality that will help us to see (and understand) more clearly. Light can also communicate levity or joy. The presence of the Light brings a softness and sweetness with it. Can the Sacred Light be seen? No, you simply sense it.

Beneath the Sacred Light seeks to musically express the feeling of surrendering to this Light to restore a sense of trust and well-being that things are working out just fine. You are not alone.
