About this album

‘The Seasons’

“The Alpha & Omega Suite” was begun in 2000 and completed nine years later in 2008. Though heavy on lyrics, the compositions were also written to stand on their own as an orchestrated instrumental.

After taking a two year hiatus away from the music, at the end of 2010, phil (tAaOS) returned to the compositions and started notating and scoring. The new variation on the Suite is referred to as ‘the Seasons’. Each season will contain a different ‘take’ on the individual pieces, for instance Autumn emphasizes strings and orchestra, Winter is heavy on piano, Spring will be more hard/electric, and Summer is not determined yet.

Phil is randomly scoring the individual pieces separately as inspiration strikes. So far the 2-1/2 parts completed have each taken 5 to 6 weeks of endeavor. The Psalmists Sonata, though number 12 out of the 35 pieces was the first sheet music was written for. Phil says it is a piece which when first written back in 2004, was immediately ‘stuck in my head’ as a heavy string arrangement. These strings are also a part of the first recorded version with lyrics.

Promises Fulfilled was the first song written for the Alpha & Omega Suite… back in 2000. It has always been dear to the composer and became the second piece notated and scored the first month in 2011.

At the slow rate these songs are being put to sheet music, it probably won’t be completed for several years. So… we must be patient and sit back and wait as each new composition is added.

Let the season begin.
