Still (A Hymn for Peace)

By Heather Sorenson

Fragile and precious, this sacred tone poem is a prayer for peace and a plea for healing of the heart. The soundscape of the anthem rises from a single tone, opening to reveal glimmering splashes of choral color. As the words become more impassioned, the octavo surrenders to a flowing piano episode that matches its intensity. This petition for calm begins to quiet as the anthem winds down, allowing the prayer to end in hushed chords of assurance.
