    Choir Performs "Flow Water"

    9:15 & 11:00 AMSanctuary

    Next Sunday the choir performs "Flow Water" written by Damien Kehoe when he was just 22. This piece touches on modern dimensions of choral harmonies.  The words are free verse poetry.

    Peace like a river that flows beneath the sky,
    water so fresh and still where I alone must lie,
    strength of the current, washing from the earth
    oh hear that moving water surge from my heart
    it is where I go to search amidst the lake
    where pain and anguish burn like the flame in my heart
    like the flame in my soul wait for water
    peace like a river like a river so fresh and still
    beneath the sky fresh so fresh and still
    where I alone must lie
    where I alone must lie
    where I alone must lie
    flow water.

    Just at the beginning of his musical career, Damien looks forward to cultivating new sounds and experimenting with different styles and techniques.  He lists Whitacre, Palestrina, Bach and Wagner as his main influences.

If you’re interested in singing with us, rehearsals are on Thursday nights from 7-8:30pm, and all fun-loving people who want to sing are welcome!  To learn more about the choir, talk to a choir member during Coffee Hour after any Sunday service or contact Sadie here.  Come to a rehearsal Thursday evening during the season, and we’ll all make music together.
