Program Notes

With soaring melodies and chorale-like moments, this original work is an affirmation of the human spirit. It's a lovely, expressive piece that offers moments of real strength.

- Program Note by publisher


In Heaven’s Air (2002) is about the letting go of a loved one from your hands into the hands of God, as well as the glorious transformation of the soul to Heaven. Musically, this letting go occurs from measures 49 to 60, with material before measure 49 representing love on Earth and material after measure 60 representing God’s love. At measure 60, the grand chorale symbolizes the soul’s arrival in Heaven.
