Our World (for High School or Adult Chorus)

for SATB chorus and piano

An uplifting, secular piece about our planet’s place in the universe. Its energy and relatively low difficulty level make this 3-minute piece something to consider for a high school or community group.

You and I
Share a single place
A private universe
Tiny point in space.
Complex world of water, stone, and air…
Necessary water, stone and air
Turning while we whirl around the sun…
Spinning as we whiz around the sun.

You and I
Share a biosphere
Terrestrial abode –
All we have is here.

Filled with life,
Filled up with strife – the human comedy.
Insulated,
Isolated,
Eons old – a fragile home called Earth.

You and I
Share a blue-green place
A private universe
Our own realm in space
Complex world of water, stone, and air…
Necessary water, stone and air
Turning while we whirl around the sun…
spinning as we whiz around the sun.
Spinning on our axis while we orbit ‘round the sun.

Our World was commissioned and premiered by Cantabile Chamber Chorale. Rebecca Scott, Director
