    Program Notes
    The river referred to in River of Four Reflections is the river Cardoner which flows through the small town of Manresa just northwest of Barcelona in Spain. Above the river is a cave especially celebrated in Manresa as a place Ignatius of Loyola lived in retreat for awhile. On the floor of the entrance to the cave has been constructed a mosaic of a sunflower, inscribed with the words (in Spanish) "He Turns Toward the Sun." Loyola began developing his Spiritual Exercises here, which comprise four weeks of retreat and meditation. It is a classical, and practical, manual of Western thinking and writing.
