Released in 2009 Track: 11 / Time: 4:20
Once again we return to Lindisfarne - the sound of the waves gently lapping on the shore, the seabirds and the sea breeze. I love the way the whistle sits in perfectly with the environmental sounds as though it is sound kind of timeless living creature itself, being played by the wind and waves.

The Trinity of God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit is the perfect example to us of selfless, giving love and unity. The way this is expressed in John chapter 17 makes it one of my favourite Bible passages. Just as the text on Mary's picture hovers over the waves and wind, so David's improvised, yet perfectly constructed melody on this piece soars, firstly over the waves, then majestically in perfect unity with the electric guitar over the string orchestra. All the while everything is held together by the gentle, cyclic high strung guitar figure which reflects the many swirls that Mary has so painstakingly painted within the waves.

At the end we are left with the wind of the Spirit, blowing where it will.
