Summon the Wind

The plaintive flute and echoing bells, they call the wind. The title came from a feeling that I had while writing it. If I had to prove I was a wizard, what would I choose to do? Disappearing is far too mundane. What this song whispered to me was something far more powerful - dangerous even. To dare to… to summon the wind! So that rather strange phrase instantly became the title of the song - and later that of the album. I think the phrase arose from the Bible: Hosea 8:7 “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind”  (which I always thought would be a cool way to generate exciting weather). Thus Sown the Wind morphed into Summon the Wind.
