Come Travel

Come Travel

Come Travel is a lively two-part song with chant for either SSAATTBB or SATB with SATB Soloists.

Composed in Makam Hicaz (pronounced hee-jaz) Come Travel follows a traditional Ottoman Turkish Illahi (pronounced il-lah-hee) style beginning with a written version of a ney improvisation, followed by a repetitive chant in harmony and then a melody. The text is a song of praise and remembrance of Allah and invites the audience to come learn about Muhammad's vision in the Cave of Hira in Saudi Arabia. Come Travel is arranged for a divided choir or choir with soloist subset. While this produces more layers of sound, the writing is kept simple with the soprano and tenor doubling and the alto and bass doubling.

Text For: Come Travel

ya baSeer

Come travel with your eyes alone along an earthen road,
Through forests freshly green, past spacious grassy fields, up into gently rolling knolls.
The path gives way to endless sands, a desolate desert terrain.
Rise steep mountains, massive boulders, Hira's sacred cave contained.
