Sunday, February 24, the Choir will perform a piece by David Greenberg with words by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Greenberg is an American poet and songwriter. Emerson was an American poet and essayist. Put together they make beautiful music. The piece is called simply “Music” and it is beautiful.
Let me go where’er I will, I hear a skyborn music still:
It sounds from all things, all things old,
It sounds from all things, all things young,
From all that’s fair, from all that’s foul,
Peals out a cheerful, cheerful song.
The theme of the service will be Surrender and Letting Go. This poem/song explores the beauty in the mundane, the hope in the mean, the light in the dark. Through it we learn to let go of the need for perfection, and accept that imperfection is okay.
