The season of Lent: a Christian celebration and time to reflect, to answer the call of personal sacrifice (by either giving something up, or I believe less practiced, doing something
extra) for a time, in preparation for the ultimate cosmic and spiritual event, the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

I am inspired by different religious texts and their associated celebrations given to such days by
people of faith and felt compelled to compose 40 tracks over the season of Lent in 2016.

I am reissuing the collection in 8 volumes to be released over the lent season of 2018, having meticulously remastered every track for more clarity and balance. In looking back, releasing all of the material in one collection wasn't the best idea and so each volume has 5 tracks which will be a much more manageable way to download and hear the music.

it is my hope that these soundscapes (both dark and light, gentle, and, at times, harsh) will call you further inward, to reflect on the wonder of the universe and the magnificence that is our lives, living them as we feel we are called to do so, with fullness of expression.
