I played this song over and over again, one afternoon while writing Dire Cravings, and even while writing, Yuri, from 2 Nights with you. I downloaded everything from this composer and was floored. I couldn’t stop listening. I was moved, and elated. Have you ever listened to piece of music that had the hairs on the back of your neck rising? Something that’s given you chills each time you’ve turned it on. His music is powerful, and he’s been added to my list of things I must see before I pass on to my next adventure! I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I do. Every single song he’s written that I could get my hands on, has not been a disappointment at all!
