Symphonic Poem - The Passing

"This piece was written in the mood that one would associate with the passing of a loved one. A lament - a process of letting go of old entrenched ideas and value systems that no longer apply or are relevant in one’s ever changing life.


A compelling process, hard and painful, a part of life; a necessity for good mental health, happiness and peace of mind."

- Mark John McEncroe


The Passing is available on the album "Affirmations and Aspirations" and "My Symphonic Poems".
