Glad you liked the piece... Cantaloupe WILL be issuing the piece soon - I've heard the rough mixes and they sound terrific. Phil did a little tweaking of the score, too. I'd guess a spring release...

Thank you for making me discover this stunning piece. I rarely enjoy so-called sacred music, but found myself enthralled by Mr. Kline's mystical composition. I can't wait for its commercial release (which, apparently, has been postponed).
