Call of the Dove
This was a cool autumn day on New Hampshire's 2,937-foot Mt. Kearsarge, overlooking Warner and Wilmot. On very clear days, views extend to the White Mountains, the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Atlantic Ocean, and Boston. 10/17/04
A hike and picnic with my wife Anne and our dog Tristan (you can see his picture on the photo page) - late autumn in Woodstock Vermont. 11/08/05
A Scottish feeling was in the air! Mount Tom, Woodstock, Vermont 09/16/04
What started as a warm autumn day turned into a hail storm during this recording. Hail was literally bouncing off my tin whistle during this take. If you listen carefully, you can hear the Priory bells at the beginning of this piece recorded on Priory Hill, Weston Vermont. 10/15/05
When I Survey
While in Scotland, we heard a church singing "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross" to this traditional folk melody. I played this piece in the shadow of a large wooden cross erected at the Pinnacle, Streams Ministries Prayer Mountain. North Sutton, New Hampshire. 10/30/05
This piece was recorded the same day as Winter Cry before the hail storm. Priory Hill, Weston Vermont. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. 10/15/05
At the end of this song (4:26 into song), our trusty dog Tristan is heard barking at passing hikers on Mount Tom. In the Hebrew, Caleb means dog. This is a song of dogged determination. 11/08/05
