Days Have Spoken
The only principal who kept vigil with Job, but was not found guilty of accounting wrongly of Jobâs crisis of theodicy, was Elihu. He was the last to address Job after the others had exhausted their reasonings to explain the human tragedy, and also because they were much older than Elihu, and thus presumably wiser. Elihu concludes then that he should âlet days speak,â or that âdays should speakâ first. The wisdom of the aged failed this time, however. To me, the times we experience now also say much. And our daily attempts to make sense of these times and to assure ourselves of our confirmed places in them say volumes as well. International affairs speak, and so do domestic affairs, and human health, families bonds, personal welfare, life stages and life transitions. To see flags fly at half-staff almost all the time now, without knowing really for whom in particular anymore, for example, speaks to me very deeply. Yet, so do small everyday victories, and examples of resolve, and affirming the nobility and dignity and winsomeness of one another. And the still, small Voice still speaks. Amen. All of these, and other realities, are daysâ¦
Performers from Brussels, Belgium, Chicago, New York City, Brazil, the Charleston Symphony, South Carolina Philharmonic and University of South Carolina Orchestras, among others, presented these 15 commissioned works during the Days Have Spoken modern music composition concert at the Columbia Museum of Art (Columbia, SC) in February 2008. Among instrumental pieces for combinations of strings, woodwinds, brass and pitched percussion, enthusiastic concertgoers welcomed the premieres of "No! Means Nothing" and "Songs for Eleanor" for soprano, clarinet and piano, a collection sung in both English and French, often within the same song, in both standard vocal technique and sprechgesang. Lyrics with translations along with artist contact info and links to bios appear in the CD and DVD liner notes.
