The Secret Potter
My newest work, a collaboration on Psalm 139 with songwriter Jenifer Molohon Mahler. I arranged it for flute, clarinet, piano and string quartet, along with her most marvelous singing. It will enhance your sense of the nearness, compassion, and lovingkindness of Father Creator God and assist you in deeply meditating on this scripture.
