When Dov first sat in an orchestra as an 11 year old, he remembers the overwhelming experience of hearing the sounds made by even then young amateur players. the flutes to him were entirely luminous and he recalls telling his parent they sounded like angels.
from that moment on he was on a path of music, writing songs on piano shortly afterwards. on yom Kippur, he was asked to compose something for a local temple Makom Or Shalom, and the piece he came up with was originally named Tishamet, due to the year the numbers spelt in Hebrew. it was original for two violins, although he played it and recorded it on man occasions as a solo violin piece, wither with Greg Harris on piano for his CD Seraphim Rhapsody, adding synths, or for his Journey to Eden CD where he performed it in an arranged produced by Nils for rock Band.
Now he as arranged it for full orchestra featuring violin and cello, returning after 30 years to a dual instrument approach.
Poet has a sense of honor
To bring the color to the rose
To see the truth amidst the ashes
To see beneath false fashioned clothes.
A sense of duty to a moment
When a cloud pauses to oversee
The land based gardens blooming flowers
So disparate sovereign shores can agree.
Honesty becomes the one who remembers
Moments where life stretched itself upward
Where stargems transferred their magic
When the spirit and soul were highlighted together.
Spirit from above, the soul from below.
The heart a place to reconcile
Honor never waivers, never doubts
Never hides in robes of denial.
A veil of angels whose wings enjoin
Circling round like a starry dome
Keep the peace amidst the storms
Reminding always heart is home.
For focused soley on the source
Loyal in every thought and feather
To the wind the breath of God
We the cells love holds together.
A song is noble
It casts the spell
Of kindness truth and honesty
Notes must align
To create the chord of dignity and harmony
To be a note of a divine tune
To vibrate in accordance with elation
The rhapsody of seraphim
The beating heart
