September 29, 2001 (Festival of St. Michael)

Dear Jim Stonebraker and visitors to the home page:

After two stormy weeks the sun has risen again.

I wish to sincerely thank Jim Stonebraker, the webmaster of the Karlheinz Stockhausen Homepage. I am looking forward to meeting him in person. He wrote that he might attend the Stockhausen Courses Kürten 2002.

Many people have written to Jim Stonebraker and conveyed their support for me as an artist and composer. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

I am very grateful that you took the time to encourage me during this difficult time that the entire civilized world is passing through.

I pray that God will console the spirits of the friends and relatives who suffered the loss of loved ones in New York City and Washington D.C.

Your prayerful support has strengthened me to continue my work on HOCH-ZEITEN (MARRIAGES) for 5 choral groups and 5 orchestral groups performing simultaneously and synchronously in two auditoriums. This is the final scene of SUNDAY from LIGHT.

HOCH-ZEITEN includes poems of love in the Hindi, Chinese, Arabian, English and African (Kiswahili) languages.

Let us move fearlessly ahead!
