Musical Biography: David A. Lane began composing music after his parents bought a piano when he was twelve years old. Decades later, he related that, prior to having ready access to an outlet for his talent, he heard music in his head. At fourteen, he wrote the hauntingly beautiful “Leaves” for a special choir assignment at school. The piano composition so impressed a member of the Seattle Chamber Choir who saw the sheet music that she asked for a copy of the song. The choir later recorded it in four parts for the high school freshman, and he still treasures that tape. The instrumental version on this CD is fully orchestrated, yet still features the original piano part.
Other songs in this adult contemporary album range from the gently flowing “Images” to “The Quest,” a powerful piece that demonstrates Lane’s versatility as a composer. The instrumental version of “Katherine’s Song,” a pop ballad inspired by the protagonist in the novel A Brother Betrayed by L. S. Lane, has been a favorite of many who have heard it.
