To My Friends and Fellow Students of the Urantia Book

Hymn to the Divine


Music and words by Jerry Gerber
 

Impervious to uncertainty and loss
I put my faith and trust in the divine
I rise above fear and hate, to seek only truth, beauty and love
I grow my soul and heal my mind
with truth and righteousness
When clouds of darkness hide the light
I remember the ascension plan
I feel grateful for the sacred miracle of life
New worlds await when my mortal sojourn on this rebel planet ends.

 

Technical Information:

This piece was composed and sequenced into a computer (A DAW, or digital audio workstation)

and the choir is from a "sample library", which is essentially many thousands of recordings

of professional singers singing various syllables, vowels, consonances, siblances and plosives. 

The composer chooses which samples will sing which words by typing text into a "word builder", which uses its own

programming language to arrive at a reasonably close approximation of how human singers

would pronounce the words. As you probably are aware, when a live choir is singing in a reverberant hall or church,

it's often difficult to understand the text unless program notes with the printed words are available. 

In some ways, this recording is not much different, which is why I included the words above.
