RainShadow Chorale would like to thank all of our friends and family for joining together to put on our fall concerts, Nov 16th and 17th! This has been a creative endeavor in the making for many months of planning, rehearsing, and so much more. Thank you to special guest composer/conductor, Jake Runestad, artist in residence, for sharing his love of choral music with us for 4 days, culminating with our two concerts including two pieces of his own composition, “Let My Love Be Heard”, and “The Secret of the Sea”.
Thank you to Rebecca Rottsolk, for her impeccable artistic direction/conducting and to Lisa Lanza for dazzling piano playing. To our own members, rehearsal leaders, pianists, managers, instrumentalists, percussionists, volunteers and generous contributors. And of course you, our audience! Thank you!
“The Secret of the Sea”.
Lo, the unbounded sea!
On its breast a ship starting, spreading all sails
The pennant is flying aloft as it speeds
Below emulous waves press forward
They surround the ship with shining curving motions and foam
My soul is full of longing
For the secret of the sea
Crash on crash of the sea
Raging against the world
Furious, the deep roar hailing you
The very gods
Rearing their mighty length
On the unharvested sea
The great sea
Moves me, sets me free
The winds of the earth
Carry me away
And my soul is filled with joy
When I drifted out
And thought myself in danger
My fears captured me —
All the things I had to get and to reach
The only thing:
To live to see the light that fills the world
