The text will be dear to the hearts of choral singers with its sentiments such as “no notes are as connected as the souls that sing them”, and the final statement, “we are one.” Musically strong and creative, this is destined to be a compelling addition to the mixed voice repertoire.

Always keep this close
and you’ll never need more,
your world is here
with the familiar voices
that linger in the air
and all those hearts
that have learned to beat
in time with each other.
You make more than music here.
No notes are as connected
as the souls that sing them
and no soul is happier than when
she is surrounded by her sisters.
Even when you leave
this does not leave you,
when you are lost just listen
and you will always
find your way home.
It is impossible for something
to go from your life
without first becoming part
of who you are.
You are another,
I am you,
we are one.
