Recently, two friends after returning home after visiting me, wrote me a heartfelt letter in which they referred to the trees as whispering, in the locality where I live. In spite of being awed by this interesting metaphor, I realize that many of the compositions in this book were composed in the locality of the “whispering trees," mentioned above.

The point here is that I attempted to infuse the essence of beauty in the compositions composed here, hopefully reflecting the environment.

Other compositions in this book stem from the middle 1950’s through 2005. In all candor, I believe that these compositions reflect the audioci-embodiment of my intrusive feelings and conceptions.

It is my hope that these compositions will help to strengthen and excite the positive qualities which are already in your heart.
