When initially inspired to arrange a work for Canada’s premiere women’s choir – Elektra – “Changed Forever” was the first and only song to come to mind. “Elektra’s members represent virtually every stage of a woman’s life, and I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t experienced at least one thing Shari has written about in this song – I imagined Elektra as I arranged the piece and know that many lives will indeed be ‘changed forever’ when they experience Shari’s incredible song”. This is one of the more poignant and meaningful pieces in the Cypress catalogue choirs.
