Program Notes

The composer prefaces this composition in honor of his mother with these words:

Her life was heroic, but without fanfare.
She worked and hoped and inspired.
She loved and was loved.

Her life was a noble song of quiet courage.

The best review I found for this wonderfully touching composition is this: “How to cry in four minutes.”
