Drawing wonderful poetic parallels between the beauty of nature and the beauty of music, Music in the Mountains pairs rich text with flowing melody and accompaniment. It was written by Craig Curry and Patti Drennan in honor of Lew Kirby, retired Director of Sacred Publications at Shawnee Press who has been an integral part of Shawnee Press’s annual Music in the Mountains conference. The vivid imagery in this choral embodies the refreshment and renewal that is often achieved when marrying music and nature. Use as a quiet beginning or meditative ending to your concert. It also includes alternate text for use in sacred settings.

An SAB voicing is available here.

Within each human heart there is a song To give us hope and help to make us strong When we see creation's beauty The starry night, the rising sun The song begins and our voices rise as one Every race of people hears the melody A song sung by the wind upon the trees The heavens declare this glory Day after day their voices raise And we'll join their mighty chorus Lost in wonder, love, and praise There is music in the mountains And a song upon the hill A song of praise and adoration And we hear its echo still It reaches from the valley And it spreads across the plain Calling one and all to join the sweet refrain There is no language where there voice is not heard No ear that cannot understand We hear it growing and our hearts are stirred All creation sings across the land (chorus) Won't you heed the call and join the sweet refrain Music in the mountains (creation sings) Music in the mountains (creation sings) (I hear the melody) Music in the mountains (creation sings) Music in the mountains (creation sings) (I hear the melody)
