This piece has been in development for around 10 years now. Originally it was concieved in a moment of reflective mood during the summer after a period of 6 months in which both my parents had passed. I first realized the piece as a pop "New Age" ballad which I included on a CD of original pieces. Not until the arrival of the "Garritan Personal Orchestra" and a couple years of learning how to use GPO did I feel I could do justice to this melody. I present it here in anticipation of the spring season which (especially for us North Coast people)should eventually arrive.
Picture a warm spring day and off in the distance is a refreshing, life giving spring storm. With that I submit:
A Distant Spring Storm
