A musical interlude

I just finished work this weekend on a musical composition I'd been working on — off and on — for a while. It is a meditation on some of the images from the account of the Emmaus walk. Not "program music" in the usual sense; that is, it doesn't follow the story. Rather it plays with the images of joy and sadness, desolation and companionship, concealment and revelation. "Two of them were walking in the country" is the title, and it ends with a sense of the wonder "as he vanished from their sight."

This is an mp3 file, so you'll need the ability to play that, and a broadband connection is highly recommended.
