The poet’s prayer pleads for the healing of a broken land riddled with injustice, hate, and revolution. Originally written for two voices and piano, composer Liza Seigido expanded the song's instrumentation to include modern synth flavors and an alto saxophone, masterfully executed by Lawrence W. Moore. Although this piece is now 15 years old, its message resonates now more than ever before. Liza Seigido: Vocals, synths. Lawrence W. Moore: Alto saxophone. Recorded and mixed by Liza Seigido & Lawrence W. Moore. Mastered by Carlos Santos Györi at Polaris Studios.
