Arresting and Glorious

Music of the Universe  —  Harmony, Balance and Continuity of Life

Today, we find ourselves universally aware of how we are linked — in our country and throughout the globe — people to animals and to the earth itself.

“Earth music,” complex yet pure, communicates the earth of its origin with the dissonance, harmony and energy of the natural world. Imbalance and balance in sound.

Fifty years ago, Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day. In its first year, 20 million people participated in rallies around the world calling for a broad, inclusive vision of ecology that supports the well-being of all people and all creatures.

Edward Hicks - Peaceable Kingdom

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.

Text from inspiration for Hicks’s paintings

Randall Thompson’s The Peaceable Kingdom is based on texts from the Old Testament and inspired by Edward Hicks’s renowned paintings that explore harmony and unity.

Enjoy music that represents the essence of place — Asia to Africa, Australia to Antarctica — all seven continents of the globe. Celebrate the glorious beauty of Mother Earth and reflect on the need to care for her, our home.
