Within The Music
This powerful piece is ideal as a concert closer for your combined SATB ensemble and concert band. The choral parts are accessible enough to include beginning to intermediate choirs. The concert band receives equal focus in this majestic and stirring work. It can also be performed by choir alone with piano (four-hand) accompaniment.

Can I see you?
Can I hear you?
Can I feel you, within the music?
Can I see you, within the music?
Can I hear you, in a thousand notes?
Can I feel you, through the rhythm?
Can I sing for you, oh Lord?
I close my eyes, and quiet my mind.
I hear your voice, it brings me peace.
Now I see you, within the music.
I can see you, within the music.
I can hear you, in a thousand notes.
I can feel you, through the rhythm.
I can sing for you, oh Lord.
Alone and scared to move, in the dark of night, as the chill wind blows.
I hear your voice, you sing a, song. sing a song.
It quiets the storm, and soothes my fear. fear, and soothes my fear.
I can hear my Lord, in a thousand notes.
I can feel him, through the rhythm.
I can sing my song, to the end of days.
I can finally see you, within the music!
