"More Love" is the cornerstone movement of Songs for the Journey, which was commissioned in 2010 to be performed alongside Gabriel Faure's Requiem, and utilizes the same sonorous combination of horns, harp, organ, violas, cellos, and bass. Songs for the Journey outlines and explores similar themes as the traditional Latin Requiem - love, faith, mortality, surrender to an eternal will, etc. - but in a less ecclesiastical framework, with poems and texts drawn from a variety of sources. In assembling the texts, words of a particularly personal nature were chosen to echo Faure's intent. The musical style of "More Love" is simple and direct and the message is positive and affirming, making it appropriate for a variety of performance settings. Duration: 3:15
