Come to Me – Info

Come to Me is an instrumental music composition by contemporary composer and author Don Rath Jr. Conveying emotion is a vital part to consider when composing music. It is my hope that I have captured the emotion of longing in this piece since that was my main intention for writing it.

Story behind the song

Did you ever have strong feelings for someone, but the distance between the two of you was too great? No matter your true feelings, the distance or the place, love remained at arms length. A longing to be held, to be loved. That is what I was experiencing when this song came into being. To keep a full rich orchestration of his work I used the string quintet with the addition of the guitar creating a full arrangement adding depth and variety to this piece. The rhythmic nature of the guitar fills the inner music lines adding a richness to the overall sound.
