Album Notes
I'm a Franciscan friar and musician. Our way of life and spirituality from Francis of Assisi have formed my perceptions of nature. My life as composer and performer allow a wide range of expression and you'll find that range within these sixteen movements. This is my thirteenth album and, I believe, the most expressive and solid compositions I've ever written. From early childhood I've been captivated by everything around us from stars and galaxies to water bugs and ants to the Grand Canyon.
Though not necessarily religious these sixteen movements are uplifting, joyful, tender and rooted in the realities of natural beauty all around us. My years as a priest and a Franciscan have given me a deep sensitivity to human nature and to the splendors of life in its fullness. I am grateful that I am a musician and have such a splendid manner to express the richness of life as I perceive it.
This collection has been a joy to produce with my friends, Orchestra da Camera di Perugia. And I love the fact that each movement captures one place or element or creature in a particular style. My background as a country boy of the Midwest who spent the last thirty years in Chicago are quite visible through the sounds I've managed to capture. To some, that may be called artistic creativity. I believe this album came from both that and divine inspiration. Without words the listener can experience what I have in the marvels of creation.
