LIFT UP YOUR HEARTS
This is a project after my own heart – and you could say I have been working on it all my life.
I was eight years old when I joined the Holy Trinity Anglican Church choir in Barbados where I grew up. It was from an early age that I was fascinated by the depth and substance of liturgical music from „Sanctus“ and the „Gloria“ to the „Agnus Dei“ and „Our Father“. The melodies though were more English/European than Caribbean, more distant than close, more rain and (too) little sun. After carrying the liturgical texts in my heart through all stages of my life, decades later I set about writing new melodies to my liturgy and discovering these old treasures anew…
The result is „Lift Up Your Hearts“ – 38 pieces for services or choirs, for personal meditation, and to inspire you to celebrate our faith.
