John loved his boats.
The one that I was lucky enough to sail on with him was 'Shiraz'.
This piece is a tribute to his love of the sea and the joy that I saw it gave him...

I have now found a new reason to like shiraz! Beautiful music. I especially like the build-up to the stirring ending.

Hi Philip
I love the feel of the sea and being aboard a boat.
John truly loved the sea and his boat and I tried to capture this within the piece.

I like boats and shiraz, too :-) Nice nautical motif to kick things off, Christopher. Sounds like smooth seas and good friends were the order of the day. The build up is majestic but without any real threat of heavy weather. Much enjoyed. Kind regards, Peter.

Thank you Peter
It was smooth ses all of the way when I spent the day and night aboard Shiraz. A truly calm feeling to the whole experience and a majesty to the wind rushing through my hair as we got under way.

Music is the life blood of the soul, it takes over where words might fail and I am but a simple conduit for such love... Music is a composite of the conscious, the sub-conscious and luck! Christopher P Sly E-mail: c.sly... [see more]
