The lyrics describe the water cycle and how we have threatened its life-giving ability. Could be sung by a group, though might be best for a soloist. A larger arrangement is available from Jim Scott in SATB.
SATB, with optional flute/ oboe. One of my first environmental anthems, this describes the water cycle and what human pollution has done. I sang it regularly with the Paul Winter Consort for years and it is recorded on the Consort’s “Concert for the Earth” (Live at the UN) – the recording here is from my “Earth, Sky, Love and Dreams” CD.

A song about human connections, this has a gospel style chorus that can be repeated and built up to a big climax.
