“Let Your Life Sing” is based on and inspired by Amy Lowell's poem, “Listening”, included in its entirety below. The poem conveys the idea that singing frees the beautiful essence of an individual (including all his or her songs, thoughts, and doings) and that each person's essence is the true music, rather than the song itself. The added chorus text was inspired by a quote from Fredrick Buechner and encourages one to discover both his or her own unique passion, as well as to find how that passion can meet the world's needs.

Lowell's rich, descriptive writing lends itself to text painting, or capturing a textual idea through the motifs and patterns of the music. Strive for expressive singing throughout, especially in portions of the piece (such as m 37-55) where text painting is prevalent. Also, listen for the many iterations of the opening “Let your life sing” motif, which is repeated to highlight the text's urgency and importance. Finally, as you perform this piece, seek not only to share the text's meaning with your audience, but also to internalize and live out its message.

Greg's Notes
Based on a poem by Amy Lowell called "listening", this piece conveys the idea that singing frees the beautiful essence of the individual and that each persons essence is the true music, rather than the song itself. Beautifully written and a great message!
