RADIANCE

SATB+Piano+Cello / Hard

In group work, when there is a project in common which brings people together while building relationships that withstand time, and when total trust in the other is present, nothing else is required to feel fulfilled.Knowing that you are surrounded by people with whom you want to share the best part of yourself is where true success lies.

This piece is about fully and truly committing to human relationships and being able to look back with joy on all the failures and achievements shared throughout time, certain that our joint efforts have made us stronger. Having someone with whom to build upon and share life makes us mutually stronger. RADIANCE is a piece that reminds us we must live each moment with intensity, feeling the blaze of the life force from all those that surround us. This is my message for this piece A piece which must be delivered with attitude, presence and commitment.

Lyrics

The air, it shines with new light
In your eyes, in my eyes,
A new horizon opens wide before us;
This moment and eternity are one.

We open our eyes together
In this moment,
And discover forever in each other.

Together we have weathered every storm;
The tempests that tormented us,
The shadows that darkened our hearts
Can darken us no more.
Together we have captured all the wind,
And the rains are now a flowing river,
Gleaming in the golden light
Of a blazing new sun of joy, of us!

We are that light
That shines in the clear air,
The radiance of all eyes;
We are the one and eternal unity,
And our union is the soul of all things,
The universe, reflected in our eyes.

Poem by Charles Anthony Silvestri

Observations

I always thought that this work deserves an orchestral version. This will allow the chorus to have more time between phrases. The piece can play around with the texture and the alternation of voice types. Plus it can get a deeper and more elaborate interlude. If you are interested in bringing the orchestra version to life, feel free to contact me.

Being a self-published composer

I am a self-published composer. My philosophy is to create unity between people. For this reason, I value the composer-director and composer-choir relationship, providing a complete service for those who incorporate these works into the repertoire.
