Product details

Genesis 1:2-3 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters... Then God said 'Let there be light' and there was light.

The creation of light into a dark and formless world; the composition of a new musical work; the birth of a baby- I imagine all of these as a weaving together of multiple threads, a miraculous and perfect growth that begins simply but multiplies over and over to complete the most beautiful creation. In nine short months, I have produced my most amazing creation so far, a little person called Oscar, and a new musical work for orchestra. ...and there was light is a symphonic poem exploring the journey of creation throughout the nine months in which I made my little boy, and is dedicated to him.
