Lent 16 : Taken by the wind

Strange things happen in the wilderness that don’t happen in settled life. Bread falls from heaven and birds bring food. One of the stranger stories in the New Testament is that of Philip. He meets the Ethiopian, baptizes him and the Spirit of the Lord snatches Philip away and he finds himself in another place. As dreary as the wilderness can be the Spirit sometimes does snatch us away. Maybe back home. Or maybe to another part of the desert.

This piece uses the bass in an attempt to express that feeling of being taken.
