"The Gates Of Delirium"
(Anderson, Howe, Moraz, Squire and White)

Stand and fight we do consider
Reminded of an inner pact between us
That's seen as we go
And ride there
In motion
To fields in debts of honor
Defending

Stand the marchers soaring talons,
Peaceful lives will not deliver freedom,
Fighting we know,
Destroy oppression
The point to reaction
As leaders look to you
Attacking

Choose and renounce throwing chains to the floor.
Kill or be killing faster sins correct the flow.
Casting giant shadows off vast penetrating force
To alter via the war that seen
As friction spans the spirits wrath ascending to redeem.

Wars that shout in screams of anguish,
Power spent passion bespoils our soul receiver,
Surely we know.
In glory
We rise to offer,
Create our freedom,
A word we utter,
A word.

Words cause our banner, victorious our day.
Will silence be promised as violence display?
The curse increased we fight the pow'r
And live by it by day.
Our gods awake in thunderous roars,
And guide the leaders hand in paths of glory to the cause.

Listen, should we fight forever
Knowing as we do know fear destroys?
Listen, should we leave our children?
Listen, our lives stare in silence;
Help us now.

Listen, your friends have been broken,
They tell us of your poison; now we know.
Kill them, give them as they give us.
Slay them, burn their children's laughter
On to heck.

The fist will run, grasp metal to gun.
The spirit sings in crashing tones,
We gain the battle drum.
Our cries will shrill, the air will moan and crash into the dawn.
The pen won't stay the demon's wings,
The hour approaches pounding out the Devil's sermon.

Soon, oh soon the light,
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you,
Our reason to be here.

Soon, oh soon the time,
All we move to gain will reach and calm;
Our heart is open,
Our reason to be here.

Long ago, set into rhyme.
Soon, oh soon the light,
Ours to shape for all time,
Ours the right;
The sun will lead us,
Our reason to be here.

Soon, oh soon the light,
Ours to shape for all time,
Ours the right;
The sun will lead us,
Our reason to be here.

Some can tell you to go to heck in such a manner that you would think you might actually enjoy the trip, but that is far more polite than civil - JBryan

I went to music school with her (undergrad). WOW!! I knew she was doing very well, but I didnt know about the pulitzer prize. She was so quiet and unassuming back then, as opposed to the very flamboyant, arrogant, and attention-demanding other composition students who thought they were on their way to greatness.

Way to go Jennifer!

Tatiana Nikolayeva playing her own transcription of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.

I really want to learn this arrangement some day. If I ever manage to find it for less than $20.

I found the cover intriguing too and have the same question Jack Frost. What kind of music is it?

Sibelius complete songs, finally released on CD after 20 years, 1985 Grammy winner. Some of the most beautifully heartrending music I've ever heard, in a wonderful recording and performance.

I might have to check that one out, Dan. Thanks for the tip. (This is really why I started this thread over 1000 posts ago, to share our music with each other).

Gryphon,

Gryphon,
You will have to hear it. Stunning music, and nobody could understand why it took so long to re-release. Strangly when I ditched my records last year, and this was one of the must keeps, it was released on CD about the same time. I've waited because of the weak dollar (I had to buy it from England), but finally broke down.

Elisabeth Soderstrom, Tom Krause, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Irwin Gage, Carlos Bonel.

Some of the best gems are buried in the middle, it's a 4 disk set.

Just this past fall I saw one with a hundred-eighty degree bend in the head. Apparently they're used for younger students, to lessen the reach required. Don't know if that's the same reason for a ninety degree bend.
