Product Description

An environmental oratorio by composer Robert Kyr, commissioned by Cappella Romana in 2007 and now recorded for the first time, this work explores the urgent issue of ecological crisis caused by humanity s inability to live in harmony with the natural world. A Time for Life draws from texts in Greek Orthodoxy, the Bible, and Native American prayers with an ultimately
optimistic approach. The work traces a journey from the glory of Creation
through potential modern destruction to a hopeful future, in which humanity
serves as a responsible steward of the earth and thus realigns itself with the
creative forces of existence, resulting in a spiritual awakening that leads from a state of division and separation to the way of unity and wholeness.


A moving and elegiac oratorio. --Austin Chronicle

Kyr s music wept for the Earth. It shuddered and then grew stronger, blooming into beauty before evaporating in silence. --The Oregonian
