As the first part of a trilogy, David Farrell Smith introduces us to the theme that the spirit of a warrior is many times bound to the promise of love awaiting his return. Regardless of the conflict, history is replete with stories that highlight the faith of love, the fire of battle, and the hope of return. Inspired by the interactions of men and women as they embraced loved ones on either side of the journey, Smith starts his epic with this song for treble voices. The second offering in the set is for male voices and the conclusion is set for SATB voices. These work well individually, but are very moving when presented as a group. Duration: 2:30
