My Heart Be Rain

Inspired by the opening line of the novel The Country of Ice Cream Star, the tenor line of this song was in my head for well over a year before I was able to piece the rest of it together. The lyrics in the C part (I have circled round God for a thousand years and still I do not know: am I a falcon? or a raging storm? or a peaceful song?) come from a Rilke poem. This song can be approached in different ways, from just using the A section as a repeating mantra or running the whole arrangement as a performance piece. You can watch the Bright Wings Chorus perform it here in our farewell concert:
