    Powerful, Jerry. I know the feeling. It also reminds me of my favourite composer, Havergal Brian. When he had the vision of what turned out ot be his most colossal creation, the ‘Gothic’ Symphony (1919-1927), the intensity was such that he wanted to compress it all into 10 seconds. The work, as it is, lasts almost 2 hours to do the vision justice…

      Sometimes it is a whisper, or something quieter than a whisper; sometimes an explosion. Music has the subtlety and power to express such moments.
