CoverThe Weaver [level: Medium]
Jacob Narverud: Bio and other works
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1283 | duration: 4:00 | price: $2.15
accompaniment: piano

The story of a weaver at work is here told, subtly revealing a metaphor for family life. Composed to be part of a concert titled Modern Families, here is a text to think about, and special music to enjoy. With much melodic involvement for all, and divisi only for the sopranos in 4 chords, this is within the reach of many choirs.

performance by: USC Thorton School of Music Chamber Singers - Jo-michael Scheibe, conductor [© all rights reserved]

The Weaver

The weaver sets the loom to frame
A blanket designed without a name.
Of colors too rife to call by tone or hue,
Showing the world in shades of brown and blue.
The skeins of yarn lie in the room
On chairs and floor around the loom.
The weaver loves their colors and their touch
And marvels they in silence, say so much.
The cloth that shelters old and young
is all from this same magic spun.
Their strength is in their closeness, drawn.
By loom and hand, each yarn is strong.
Draw the strands together, tight.
Bold colors glowing in the light.
The threads that make the fabric warm
Will keep this family safe from harm.

by Bryan Welch
