Man Loses Everything, Yet Survives to Write World’s Greatest Hymn

Put yourself in his shoes.  You are a very wealthy, influential person.  Everybody loves you and wants you on their team.  You lead organizations, start charities, serve regularly in ministry, and are active in your community.  You get into real estate and have multiple properties and businesses that you own.  You have a loving spouse and several adoring children.  You are, in a sense, on top of the world.

A Story Behind the Story

Everyone loves a good, captivating story.  Seldom, though, do we ever stop to consider that each tale has a story behind the story.  Why did the author choose to write it that way?  What were his inspirations or motivations?

In light of the coming live world premiere of The Light Princess on February 27 and again on March 6, I wanted to take a moment to share with you two behind the scenes stories:  the story behind The Light Princess and the story behind why I wanted to set this magnificent work to music.

I very much appreciate my friend Abigail Beck’s expertise in helping me put this short video together.  I have so enjoyed working on this piece and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
