i wanted this to sound church-like.. does that make sense? :/ lately i've have had this poem in my head constantly.. especially the last part. so i made this song. not very happy with vocals so if anyone wants to sing it i will upload the instrumental.

Repeating rhythms, Tracing traditions
Stealing scales and cutting chords and making history of prehistoric patterns, coming back up and out of our shells,
from our hearts, whose every beat is a prayer
There's something I love, I swear something's there.
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer

    Went back & read the poem, and I like your selection of it, almost a new, simpler poem. (It reminds me of settings of the Requiem Mass - most composers select portions of the text rather than feeling the need to set it all. Fauré in particular wanted to compose a peaceful, restful Requiem full of assurance, and he selected text accordingly.) You've boiled the poem down to its beautiful essence & set it to music quite brilliantly. I love the contrast between the sedate, almost chant-like music breathing its (patterns &) prayer(s), and the "preacher" voice set within that broader stillness, the way everything we say about God/the divine/ultimacy is itself set within, encompassed by, transcended by, and made contingent on the greater Reality we can only point to.
    In other words, your song is amazing! :D

    Hey Wirrow... can you upload the instrumental/back-up vocal of this? I think the vocals are lovely, but I'll give them a try.

    Just an idea, That I probably wont be able to pull off myself, but if anyone has access to a chamber choir it would sound really nice with the music.

    I just wanted to say this is a beautiful song Wirrow! It is so to the point about the essence of the sermon, and I think Joe is as wrong about this needing a different reading as you are about your vocals. I love this!

    Wirrow, this is SO beautiful!! I'm happy with the vocals! ;)

    I would LOVE to sing this though... if you would post the instrumental... I've been super putting off NOT singing with all the lovely songs around here that I want to...
    I just don't have the confidence yet,
    BUT, I've started booking paid singing jobs, so, I figure it's 'bout time!!! ;D
