Symphony No. 5 - Sandfloor Cathedral

This work was the highest level of experiential composition that I have ever enjoyed. Swimming with dolphins, humpback whales, sharks, etc., would change anyone; and fortunately I was not an exception. My good friend Donald Tipton seemed to know that once this “encountering” process was begun a new work would soon follow. He was right and it did.

The musical result has been broadcast around the world and has enjoyed more success than anything that I have written to date. I have never tired of this work and have been told by countless people that it is a daily meditation for them. I have never really taken credit for the symphony. I just wrote what I understood and experienced after I met the sea on its own terms. This is a sacred work to me. I feel God’s presence in it and I trust you will too.

I still am a novice in the water but I strive to become a master portrayer of its grandeur.
