It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Sunday, January 30, 2005

We had another "How beautiful" choir rehearsal yesterday, and it was fun! I think we're going to try and record on the 11th. We'll have to see if that works out.

One of the choir members, as we were winding down, pointed out something I said. I'd been talking about the line in the final chorus that goes. "How beautiful/ How beautiful my soul/ When I say to Zion/ Your God Reigns" I was talking about the dissonance that happens between the choir, the melody, and the guitars at the end of the second phrase, at "soul", which creates powerful tension, and is resolved at the first syllable of "Zion".

Anyway, one of the singers mentioned, "Did you hear what you just said?"

Uh, no...

"You said, 'The interesting part of this line is that there's a lot of dissonance in 'My Soul' which gets resolved in 'Zion'!"

When I told that to John (who wrote the choral parts), later on, he said, "Wow. That's like the traveller who unpacks his bags, and finds something there that he didn't start the journey with!"
