    Ah, how often we are confronted by the majesty you so aptly describe here Tony, as when the glorious Old Sol arises to pour himself onto another day, and the 'Moses moment' you were inspired to feel there was surely the event in Kadesh, where, at Meribah, although having initially to bow before the dazzling light of his God, the man Moses stood on the rock, and as the cleft appeared, made the vital mistake of taking the credit..... hope my stab at this is in the right direction - but the whole piece is enchanting.
