Worth of a Soul

WORTH OF A SOUL – Tom Sanderson | download mp3

lyrics by Lori Sanderson, music by Tom Sanderson

Body beautiful
Worth of a soul
Come together
to make one whole

Never apart
yet was rent
into fragments
of weight assessment

Constant belittling
due to ones weight
Was reshaped
Positive mind state

Now one leaps
healthy and strong
ready to face doubt
and find inner peace

Lori wrote these lyrics abut personal experiences to share and help others with similar difficult experiences. I tried my best to help her sharing this experience by putting music to her lyrics. I resisted the temptation of adding too many instruments when creating the sequence. Instead, I filled the musical space with eight backing voices (4 parts, doubled). I used a mellotron flute sample to mix things up at the end. Lori shared a video slideshow of her own creation on social media which received good response. A good project to close out 2020.
