After a number of requests, Rosemary has produced a book containing nineteen of her songs which have arisen out of groups meeting for periods of quiet reflection. They are simple settings for unison voices and piano, designed to help the singers remember the words and take them to heart. The title, Sing into Silence, was suggested by a group member who commented that these words have arisen out of silence and the music takes you back there.
The collection includes ten individual songs to original words, and four settings from St. John’s Gospel, some of them arranged from the cantata Let not your heart be troubled which Rosemary wrote in 2002. The collection is completed by the five movements of I am with you, which sets a sequence of verses from the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.
Sing in to Silence is available from Rosemary via the contact form on this website and costs £8 plus postage. If you visit Rosemary’s Soundcloud site https://soundcloud.com/rosemary-broadbent you can hear some of the songs: Still am I, Come sweet friend, and two of the St. John settings in their choral versions.
