Neither Angels, Nor Demons, Nor Powers

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SSATBB, a cappella

A beautifully written piece, "Neither Angels, Nor Demons, Nor Powers" is a lovely statement of faith and can be programmed either as a moving memorial or simply as an affirmation of belief. This piece gives the men and women an opportunity to work as separate groups, but in tandem with each other. Great phrasing and text stress will bring out the nuances of this lyrical piece.

Text: 

And I believe. So I believe.

I will lift my eyes to the hills.
There, dost thou well believe, no storm should come
To mar the stillness of that angel-home;
There should thy slumbers be
Weighed down with honey-dew, serenely blessed.

And I believe. So I believe.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
neither angels, nor demons, nor powers,
neither things present nor things to come,
neither height nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God.

I do believe.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
