Synopsis

The questions, however simple and short, can take up a lot of space in our minds, leading to insomnia and uncertainty. This piece tackles a simple premise and the overload of textures that generate confusion and harassment. It contains literally whispered secrets, hidden truths and disturbing harmonies. A surprising piece for any type of choir.

Lyrics

Sometimes I wonder …
I’m made in the image and likeness of God,
Or so the Bible tells me;
But when God looks down at his belly,
Does he see The same belly-button there as me?

But if God has a belly-button,
Who can his Mother be?
And if God does not,
Then I am not like He.
So I wonder,
Either I’m not made in the image of God,
Or God is not who he’s supposed to be.

Charles Anthony Silvestri
