) this is a rich-sounding, serene and tender piece inspired by "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy" (Matthew 5:7)." A good choice for a prayerful or meditative moment in church services, or other sacred services. It's a fairly easy early-intermediate level piece, with basic classical finger-style, and chromatic use of the open D chord form (with some rich harmonic variations).

Brad Powell is a talented and highly trained California guitarist and composer who calls himself "The Candlelight Guitarist", and for good reason. His music is perfect for situations in which candlelight figures prominently. Quiet meditation, romance, intellectual stimulation – the soft, pure tones of his Spanish and classic instrumental style open up your heart and render it more receptive to the spiritual messages that these pursuits engender."
