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.

Classical, jazz, world folk music influenced instrumentals by cello, oboe, guitar and ethnic percussion featuring Jim and former Winter Consort friends who originally recorded as the group Radiance. Selected from the albums A Song for the Earth and Inverness, these sparkling compositions by Jim and improvisations by the acoustic ensemble are great for relaxation, reflection, free dance and life in general. Including free shipping.
Instruments of Peace
This is a gospel-flavored melody with my words adapted from a poem by Kenneth Patton that makes a good opening song for a service or a blessing for a house. Four verses go into a repeated 4 bar vamp with a counterpoint “Let this be a house of peace” chant.
A Thanksgiving and harvest song. this has an accessible melody for a group to sing, while the piano part can be taken as a four part SATB harmonization. A more up tempo and orchestrated arrangement of this song with a lead instrumental line in a Celtic-style triplet rhythm is available from Jim Scott.
