Story

          

This piece was recorded with the intention of being an instrumental prelude to the song, "Joan",  for the album release on cdbaby.com - using (what is to the best of my knowledge) a rather traditional classical melody; Arranged, with the purpose of being something of a soundtrack piece, and with the hope of someday writing a concept album about the life of: "Joan of Arc"; who has always been a person of fascination to me. And a historical figure, who I have always felt a great deal of compassion, admiration, and respect for; At least, since first learning about her during my catholic school days, as a kid...

Note: The original recording of this brilliant melody (which I had always thought was some kind of traditional classical melody in the public domain incorporated into the song) may have actually been composed by Steve Hackett himself; The song itself, under copyright with the title: 'The Toast'. Therefore, I have obtained a mechanical license to use this part of the tune, accordingly...
