This powerful, original ballad by Greg Gilpin is stunning in lyric and song. A simple unison beginning builds to an ending with full choral presence and moving descant. “A sound of hope, a sound of peace, a sound that celebrates and speaks what we believe ... this is why we sing, why we lift our voice.” This will be your power ballad for the year and with the full orchestration available or CD accompaniment track, your singers and audience will literally be moved to tears. An outstanding choral work! Available separately: SATB, SAB, TBB, SSAA, 2-part, Orchestration, StudioTrax CD.

    We are using this piece as a combined selection for a choir of Senior citizens who are combining in concert with a choir from a local school district made up of 5th and 6th graders. It is the perfect "ender" to our concert! As we sing, we hope to have...

    a video made up of video vignettes from our rehearsal as a part of this wonderful experience!

    I heard this sung by the Lancaster Ohio Men's Chorus and had to have it. I have sung it SATB and two part. While I enjoy the richness of SATB it works just as well in two parts. When we introduced it to our church choir (nicknamed the "crying...

    choir") we gave them all tissues and said - just listen. Not a dry eye in the house. Definitely a favorite that will last a long time!

    This is one of those songs that will appeal to all age groups. It is very singable and my primary school children are really enjoying it.

    I have used this piece with choirs (SA, SSA) and it is very successful with both young people and adults. The melody is easy, the text has a message and the harmony lines easily managed. It works very well as a closer in a choral festival. It is also well...

    liked by audiences. Highly recommended.
