PERFORMANCE NOTES:

This was an ode of sorts to the past. Memories of Sundays. Sundays have been both uplifting and pessimistic for as long as I can remember. A heavily reflective day for me the questioning of “what is life” is always there. It is a day where I gauge where my life is at that moment, and where it’s taking me in the future.

I found this church while chaperoning a field trip to Washington, DC. As I sat in a Subway restaurant watching over eight ninth-grade boys who refused to pay the high price of food at the museum, I looked out the window there it was. The steeple. It seemed to be a sign of sorts. Towering into the sky on that sunny but cool March day, it was for that moment mine. It brought with it, many other memories. Those are mine to keep.

This was my Black Martin acoustic guitar plugged into my Scarlett Solo and my 2013 MacBook Pro using Reaper Software. The plugin I used was the Valhalla Shimmer. It’s truly an amazing reverb plug-in.

The end result was a short but glorious musical dedication to the steeple that rekindled that which was mine.
