A "compilation composition" originally created as the soundtrack to an art exhibition, themed around Dante's "Paradiso" (the third of the Divine Comedies). This segment is part I, painting a soul's journey through the first two Divine Comedies, "Inferno" and "Purgatorio."
This soundtrack was incomplete at the time of the exhibition, but was finished soon after. The second part of the composition would have suggested the soul's exit from Purgatory and entry into Paradise, or Heaven. Hence the title of this work, "Almost Heaven."
