This is a show based on the concept of a giant meteor or asteroid on a collision course with Earth!  The show begins softly with a flute soloist playing the opening phrase to the hymn "It Is Well With My Soul".  This is interrupted by the fanfare from "Also Sprach Zarathustra" representing the meteor on its ominous approach.  Then we break into "Meteor Sighting", an up-tempo opener on a modal theme with a pretty woodwind interlude.  The next segment is "Warning and Prayers", a dark minor key ballad featuring an alto sax solo.  This segment closes with the chorus from "It Is Well" representing prayers from the people of Earth.  This is followed abruptly by "Chaos and Impact!", a fast and rhythmic final segment representing chaos on Earth, some percussion interludes, and a chromatic segment that builds to the final impact!  The show closes as it began with a solo flute playing "It Is Well With My Soul".
