Symphonic Poem—Music about Earth
For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
~Folliott S. Pierpoint

What more do you need to know when you walk outside to take a breath of fresh air?
The Earth does however have a solid core of iron a nickel and a molten outer core, and of course a mantle to which we reside. Water covers about 70 percent of the globe with the air one-fifth oxygen and four-fifths nitrogen.
The Earth has of course a 24 hour day spinning on its axis with a 23 degree angle or day and night would be always the same. Also with this axis when moving around the sun this allows us a variation for the seasons and temperature. A year is 365 days with the 23 degree axis there is a slight variance a throughout the year the change is greatest especially over the period of 6 months. With this axis, the equator and poles with rising hot and cold air which gives us weather and temperature changes. With the Earth’s rotation the air is forced to move east and west.
In composing for this piece, I wanted to portray the Earth as a beautiful wondrous place in which it is. It has a rich orchestral sound of the many treasures that the earth offers in its own light. In spite of some of the more serious and harsher climates and the atmospheres of the other planets, I wanted to bring to you some of the pleasantness of the Earth to this listening experience.
