Faith Is the Bird That Feels the Light (SSA)

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SSA a cappella

A soulful rendering of Rabindranath Tagore's poetic aphorism: "Faith is the bird that feels the light, and sings when the dawn is still dark." An increasingly popular choice for festival and all-State choirs, this song features a rich alto solo, warm blues inflections, and a shimmering final chord.

"Just thought you might like to know how much my kids absolutely LOVE singing Faith Is the Bird. They are singing it constantly and tell me they sing it all the time at home too. We have had choir camp all this week, and they are just crazy about it." - Joy Hirokawa, Bel Canto Children's Chorus (Red Hill, PA)
