The month of April has been focused on creating music to offer peace and hope. It has been a busy and full week back home after recording A Thousand Years. There has been lots of listening back to mixes for final approval to master the CD. A Brahm’s Lullaby section ended up not making the final recording so that the Be Still My Soul hymn could be more prominent. My arrangement of Chopin’s Prelude in E Minor, which has an original beginning and ending inspired by Job 7, will now be titled Monastery at Eventide. I learned that Chopin composed is 24 preludes while staying at a monastery and Job 7 speaks to a longing for evening shadows amidst daily and life struggles. Graphics design work has been completed and submitted, and the CD manufacturing process will begin next week. My daily theme right now is Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” Stillness, gratitude and remembrance give me life as I reflect one day at a time.
