Angelic Voices

Last night I got to listen to Steph and the rest of the choir sing at Northwood. They spent a long day in competition at Mt Spokane High School and last night they performed all the songs they sang for that.

Die Meere is a sad, emotional and yet beautiful song. I'm not familiar with it but apparently it's about a woman who loses her husband at sea. I don't have any photos of men being lost at sea so I went with shots from the Wonderland Trail adventure I took with my brother John.

Northwood Middle School Girl's Choir.


Alle Winde schlafen
auf dem Spiegel der Flut;
kühle Schatten des Abends
decken die Müden zu.

Luna hängt sich Schleier
über ihr Gesicht,
schwebt in dämmernden Träumen
über die Wasser hin.

Alles, alles stille
auf dem weiten Meer!
Nur mein Herz will nimmer
mit zu Ruhe gehn.

In der Liebe Fluten
treibt es her und hin,
wo die Stürme nicht ruhen
bis der Nachen sinkt.
