Walk with Me for SATB Chorus (2015)

by Christian Onsager

About the Music
The lyrics of Walk with Me start with a powerful statement of anguish and should be sung in that tone. Taken literally, these words seem to apply to only a few. Yet with the music, the audience hears a universal metaphor for times when they themselves have felt broken or blinded in some way. The upper voices seek to offer succor, beginning more gently in a lower register and building to a soaring chorus of many, when the plea to accept the helping hand grows more urgent. Some listeners will relate to this chorus. Many will alternate between the perspectives of the sufferer and the helper. In the end, the two walk hand in hand and affirm the power of compassion.
