Previously released under the title "Sacred Music For The Guitar"

Track 9 "is based on the second movement of Franz Joseph Haydn's Emperor Quartet, Op. 76, no. 3 (published Sept. 28, 1797), which quotes the melody by Hauschka that became the original national anthem of Austria." The notes credit the composition of the variations to Ravenscroft and, thus, he is afforded the "Written-By" credit.

Christopher Parkening plays a Ramirez guitar/Sherry-Bremer Ltd. of Chicago
