The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill

David Lang’s the national anthems
Caroline Shaw’s To the Hands
Ted Hearne’s Consent

Caroline’s 2016 Seven Responses study on displacement and immigration is balanced with David’s meditation on the nature of national anthems: “I had the idea that if I looked carefully at every national anthem I might be able to identify something that everyone in the world could agree on….Hiding in every national anthem is the recognition that we are insecure about our freedoms, that freedom is fragile, and delicate, and easy to lose. “

if you need our death
our blood, our heart, our soul
we are ready
