Upon waking to a mysterious foggy morning on the Norwegian Sun cruise ship in Glacier Bay, Alaska, I was almost immediately possessed by my Muse. (That’s the only way I can describe it; every moment that I was not composing—even WHILE looking at the beautiful, awe-inspiring glaciers!—I was hearing the melody in my head and aching to compose.)

The initial melody (and most of what follows) is composed from the letters of the name, Glacier Bay.
