This brilliant programmatic work from the pen of Rob Romeyn is an incredible display of beauty, sensitivity, emotion and vigorous intensity. The journey begins on the morning of the great 1868 Hawaii earthquake. Peaceful and beautiful sounds of the black sand beach of PunaluÂ’u are heard as the sun rises. The music then develops, first with a statement of the traditional melody Â“The Earth Is Our MotherÂ” to remind us to respect Mother Earth and be mindful of her incredible powers. As the tempo quickens we are musically transported into the events of the fateful day, as the earthquake and resulting Tsunami ensued. As the movement of the earth subsides, we return to the beach of PunaluÂ’u as Mother Earth begins her renewal of new life. Certain to become a classic for concert and festival use, this is music of highest quality!
