Poetry and Artwork by Tiziana DellaRovere
“Surrender to the flow of life,
To who you truly are.
Surrender to the rhythms of love,
The stillness and the movement,
The richness and the emptiness,
In the presence of the glorious Union,
Forever becoming within you.
Surrender freely mixes Renaissance and contemporary choral textures to create a tapestry for the rich sound of the male voice to embody the beautiful text derived from Tiziana’s extraordinary book Adorata: The Path of Enlovement, a sacred work which is both mysteriously ancient and remarkably modern. Originally composed for a reading by the Revalia Men’s Chorus of Estonia, this piece was later selected as the winner of the Portland Vocal Consort Young Artist Composition Contest.
