A Handfull of Quietness
I had not originally intended to have a title track for the album, but I am so glad to have been given this piece: to hear, to play, to share.
Not too long before I was going to record the CD, my friend Phyllis commented that it needed a title track. I felt the music was all complete as it was; “a handfull of quietness” was the title of the CD, it didn’t need to be the title of the song.
As is so often the case, Phyllis was right. About 10 days or so before my recording sessions, this music came to me in one complete thought. I knew immediately that it was the anticipated title track.
A Handfull of Quietness is available in sheet music. I’ve used it quite often in church for quiet background music, say, while the altar is being censed.
