A reader writes from Canada

I don’t know if you have heard of this Greek-Canadian composer before, but even if he writes a lot of sacred music, he is one of the contemporary composers whose art music is most often played in the (secular) world.

with my music, I am trying

to force a tiny opening in the clouds
that will allow His Light to shine through.
At best, I am a follower, not a master,
and my MASTER holds the patterns
and patents of my being and work.

I can only think of myself
as an imitator.”
