CoverI Lift My Eyes [level: Medium]
Joan Szymko: Bio and other works
voicing: SSA | catalog number: SBMP 658 | duration: 3:30 | price: $2.50
accompaniment: piano

A provocative text combining the sentiment of Psalm 121 (I lift my eyes to the hills), with a quote from the Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Thich Naht Hanh (I am solid as a mountain). The composer opens the piece with a beautiful unison melody set to the biblical text. In typical Szymko style, we are treated to a dramatic exploration of the theme, a harmonization of the original melody, and finally a strong statement to end the piece. Not difficult, this piece will be an interesting challenge for teenagers through mature adults.
