I could not find the version I own by the Mainz Chamber Orchestra, but this one ( though a little too much brass for me at the end) is also quite good


I need so much the quiet of your love,
After the day’s loud strife;
I need your calm all other things above,
After the stress of life

_*I crave the haven that in your dear heart lies,After all toil is done;I need the starshine of your heavenly eyes,After the day’s great sun*_…At Nightfall…C. H.Towne..1914

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
