LIFTOFF CANNON CHORALE

by Leah Abramson

Home > Composers > Leah Abramson > Liftoff Cannon Chorale

Unusual, evocative, innocent, and delightful – these are words people have used to describe this fetching composition. Singers and listeners will enjoy the multiple layers Leah adds over a simple ostinato – which can be played on piano, organ or even xylophone/Orff instruments. Leah’s relatable message is that it’s easy to become stuck in patterns, and that we must do our best to “liftoff” and free ourselves from what weighs us down.

LYRICS

How can I move on when the days all last so long?

How can I stand still when the days are hard to kill?

Kneeling on my heart
