The initial inspiration to compose the symphonic poem Noor was born out of Tiutiunnik's research into the life of Her Majesty Queen Noor al Hussein of Jordan, widow of the late King Hussein. Despite this, however, the composition contains only limited references to the life of Queen Noor. Rather, since the word noor signifies light, enlightenment and illumination in the Arabic language, Noor was intended as a musical portrayal of a protagonist's mystical journey through various stages of darkness, to the light of spiritual illumination
