SATB choir, piano - Intermediate
Composed by Joan Szymko (1957-). Choral. Paul D. Head Choral Series. Octavo. Santa Barbara Music Publishing #SBMP691. Published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing (SB.SBMP-691).

Item Number: SB.SBMP-691

A provocative text combining the sentiment of Psalm 121 (I lift my eyes to the hills), with a quote from the Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Thich Naht Hanh (I am solid as a mountain). The composer opens the piece with a beautiful unison melody set to the biblical text. In typical Szymko style, we are treated to a dramatic exploration of the theme, a harmonization of the original melody, and finally a strong statement to end the piece.
