"The Spanish Princess" was inspired by the Spanish Princess Catherine of Aragon as she departs Spain for the foreign shores of England to marry Prince Arthur, brother to King Henry Viii whom she then marries after his brother's untimely death.

"I tried to capture the elegance and tragedy of this beautiful noblewoman through my music.
I wrote it while I was participating in the 2019 Film Scoring Summer Program in beautiful Varna, Bulgaria."

"In Limbo" is a walk on the beach, a stroll in the early morning sunrise, it's a state of being, it's wondering where you'll be tomorrow.

"Autumn Mists" was composed in November of this year as autumn began to invade, slowly chilling the air, inviting a feeling of death and decay. I felt inclined to create something beautiful as an antidote  and was reminded of John Keats' magnificent  "Ode to Autumn".

"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,

Close-bosom friend of the maturing sun... ".

Somehow it made it easier for me to watch summer disappear and accept winter as it marched its way forward, trampling autumn on its way...

I composed this for flute, oboe and bassoon,  piano, harp and string quintet.
