We Belong To the Earth - J. David Moore

We Belong To the Earth

$2.25

Words by Chief Seattle
SATB or SSAA
Published by Fresh Ayre Music
Commissioned by Angelica Cantanti

“We Belong To the Earth” is modelled after the meditative congregational songs of the community of Taizé in eastern France. Like a Taizé song, this piece is built upon an ostinato, over which verses are sung. The arrangement and order of the various elements of the piece (the vocal entrances of the first ostinato, the second ostinato, the verses, and the optional instruments) should be dictated by the promptings of the spirit of the moment. Keyboard support and the addition of hand percussion can be effective enhancements.

Ostinato 1:
The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.

Ostinato 2:
This we know:

Verse 1:
All things are connected, like the blood that unties one family.

Verse 2:
The perfumed flowers are our sisters;
The deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers.

Verse 3:
We did not weave the web of life, we are only a strand in it.
What we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
