PROGRAM NOTES     

"The Voice of the Ravem"

I am the voice of the raven upon wind.
My harsh cries echo long upon the earth and air.
Nothing is forever.
Not life. Not love.
Not death. Nor loss.
Only change is eternal.
and only destruction can seed the creation form...
To face me is to face your greatest terror.
the shadow of yourself.
the unknown and dangerous.
In chancing destruction,
your fear loses its power to destroy.
For only in acceptance of Mortality
will you learn the secrets of immortality
as I,
the Raven,
possess.
