From the recording Renaissance
A frenzied fast pace opening with a somber and haunting finish. I wrote this as a first movement to a trilogy (The LORD's Day, New Jerusalem & Tears). This is my Andrew Lloyd Weber/Keith Emerson type composition. It felt like a song expressing judgment mixed with the heart of God that breaks to have to bring it. I thought of calling "Ha Yom" (a Hebrew expression for Yom Kippor, the day of judgment) and also "The Day of the Lord" and a few other titles. I decided on "The LORD's Day" to bring attention to the phrase itself. It does not mean, what is commonly thought, that it refers to a certain day of the week, but rather it is the Day of judgment that precedes the coming of the "New Jerusalem"!
