A choral suite using the text of 20th-century astronomer and science popularizer, Carl Sagan. Recorded by Antiphony at the Manitoba Museum (Planetarium) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on May 29th, 2012.
There are three movements:
Mvt. 1 is about discovery…
Somewhere, somewhere… The sky calls to us. If we do not destroy ourselves, we will someday venture to the stars.
Somewhere, somewhere… Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it, we go nowhere. We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known… If we do not destroy ourselves, we will someday venture to the stars.
