Come to Me | SONOS Voices of Hope

SONOS, a gathering of 71 talented singers coming from established and world renowned choirs from 5 continents , 30 countries, world e-premiering a song that sings our hearts. To us enduring, the bereaved, and in memory of the departed, let us serenade you with "Come to Me" is a song of comfort and hope as the world passes through one of its darkest moments… a song written as the human history transits from old ways to new… a song that tells of God inviting humanity to relish and cherish rest, to look to the heavens and find comfort in knowing: He will deliver us. Allow me to acknowledge these wonderful singers, my friends all over the world whom I met in several festivals, competitions and tours through the years. Blessed to have 71 singers from 30 countries who are current members and alumni of esteemed choirs and groups - I couldn’t have asked of more. Grateful for sharing your time and talents into creating what we love most.

Daluyong | Vocal Art Ensemble of Sweden

DALUYONG by Ily Matthew Maniano Text by: Joey Vargas Performed by Vocal Art Ensemble of Sweden Jan Yngwe, Conductor Daluyong is one of the 2 songs from "Songs from Yolanda", a tribute to the Yolanda Survivors in the Philippines. It talks about the calm before the storm the storm, and the aftermath. It may be taken as a lamentation, a dirge for those who perished; yet also a celebration of the Filipino spirit: unshakable, stronger than the strongest storm. DALUYONG text by Joey Vargas Dugo ang kulay ng langit habang payapa ang paghinga ng mga laot, Sa bawat pagsilay ng sinaunang apoy na hindi nauupos. Dambuhala – hilakbot – delubyo – ang sumaklot, Dumadagundong – nang humagunot – umaalimpuyo Ang – nananalantang ragasa – dagsa ng daluyong. Dugo ang kulay ng langit habang payapa nang namamahinga ang mga laot, Sa muling pagsilang ng sinaunang apoy na nagpapatuloy. SURGE Blood is the color of the heavens as the open sea tranquilly breathes, every time the inconsumable ancient fire glimpses. Monstrous – terror – deluge – grabs, Roars – when it bellows – howls , The – devastating rush – surge of the waves. Blood is the color of the heavens as the open sea already tranquilly rests, the next time the incessant ancient fire rises.
