Composed for Concert Band. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness covered the deep. And the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters." Gen. 1:1-2b The piece paints a musical picture of what it might have been like before there was man, before the waters were separated from the land and before there was day and night. You can hear the water lapping and splashing as the waves roll on, while the Spirit of God hovers over the face of the waters.
