Remembering

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SATB, oboe, cello

"In the secret recesses of the heart… calls a still small voice." So begins this lush and lyrical setting, "Remembering." Joan Borysenko's words remind us that Divine presence is always there, reminding us that, as Hildegard of Bingen wrote, we are co-creators with the Divine; we are "both the singer and the song" (Joan Borysenko, Ph. D. is a pioneer in integrative medicine and a a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection.)

Text: 

In the secret recesses of the heart
beyond the teachings of this world
calls a still small voice
singing a song unchanged
from the foundation of the world.
Speak to me in sunsets and in starlight.
Speak to me in the eyes of a child.
You. Who call from a smile,
My cosmic beloved
Tell who I am and who I always will be.
Help me to remember
that I am both the singer and the song.
