1 - 2 weeks availability


From the Sunday Times bestselling novel, The Year of the Flood, composer Orville Stoeber has set fourteen hymns to music. Orville Stoeber on how the music came to be: 'Margaret Atwood's inspired reading of the perilous times we live in, and of the fragile nature of our earth, have directed me. I have used as my signposts the various styles of deity-based songs that I have come in contact with through my cultural inheritance, my musical education and my love of spiritually motivated art.I wrote these songs for the reasons the Gardeners themselves would have written them: for the purpose of praise, adoration, and prayer to our planet, in thanks for its animals and plants and the "primate seeds" that led to our human experience.'
