My dear Life
Another collabotarion with Charles Anthony Silvestri
Dear choir directors!
I am thrilled to announce my second collaboration with Charles Anthony Silvestri.
Together, we have brought to life an exciting new piece for mixed choir and string quartet, which we've named My dear Life.
The composition explores the power of life, revealing its warm light to someone who initially found it challenging to endure. As the individual admits his misconception, he begins to discover the true meaning of life: giving and receiving love in all circumstances.
This piece serves as a tribute to life, akin to a tender kiss emerging silently from the depths of the soul. Tony Silvestri has composed a moving and wonderful poem that enriches every note I have written.
If you would like your choir to have the opportunity to perform it or if you simply desire more details, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can discuss and make arrangements.
I am eager to collaborate with you!
Description of the work
Voicing: SATB (without divisi), accompained by a string quartet
Duration: about 5'45''

Text by Charles Anthony Silvestri
My life had always felt less than whole,
And I longed for magic, mystery, meaning.
Time has worn the edges of my spirit,
Softened my pain,
Leaving my heart open.
Sorrow had blinded me
To all the blessings
Life had given me!
Think of the time I have wasted
Listening to shadows,
Sitting in the darkness
Waiting for light!
Now I can see:
Darkness and light,
Sorrow and joy
Are but footsteps on the journey;
For love is the foundation,
Life's greatest treasure.
Love is the journey we walk together,
Hand in hand, and heart to heart.
To love another and be loved in return
Is life's greatest blessing!
Love, life, hope, and laughter,
Thankful for my life, my breath,
For my joy, for my shadows, for my pain,
For my heart, for my blessings,
For the wisdom to always be
Thankful for Life!
I'm thankful for my dear Life!
