As I look back over my work as a composer, I note how many of my compositions were inspired by love, by romance. The youthful enthusiasms that inspired these outpourings have now faded into memory, but the songs remain a testament to a search now ended. For when my eyes, by the grace of God, first fell on Neribel all my former striving ceased. Considering what gift to give Neribel for our one-year anniversary as husband and wife, I decided it was time to express what words alone could not express, so I called on the God of music and composed Tinges of Indigo, a piece that expresses the longing, tenderness, and, yes, heartache that two lovers feel as they journey through life together in a love triangle with God. I hope result infects you with the beauty of love cherished.
