November 2016 Legionnaire Article
by Fr. Bob Humacher
I was on a tour bus with a group of adults I had never met before. Everyone seemed to be in a great mood, laughing and singing. We were heading to a place of great beauty because I could see we had entered a pine forest; mountains gently rose on either side of us, similar to what I had once experienced in the Swiss Alps. This bus was shaped like a school bus but the interior was decorated in a grand Victorian style: seats were upholstered in fringed burgundy velvet and oversized curtains hung on all the windows. I sensed my own happiness simply because we were all going in the same direction, to a place of wonder and beauty. The fact that it was unknown didn’t frighten me in the least or cause any tension.

The Nature Suite
New music by Robert M. Hutmacher, ofm
with Orchestra da Camera di Perugia
The Nature Suite’s sixteen movements are uplifting, joyful, tender and rooted in the realities of natural beauty all around us. My years as a Franciscan have given me a deep sensitivity to human nature and to the splendors of life in its fullness. I am grateful that I am a musician and have such a splendid manner to express the richness of life as I perceive it.
This collection has been a joy to produce with my friends, Orchestra da Camera di Perugia. Each movement captures one place or element or creature in a particular style. My background as a child of the Midwest U.S is apparent in the sounds captured in The Nature Suite. I believe this collection came from personal creativity and divine inspiration. Without words the listener can experience what I have in the marvels of creation
