Where Waves Forget

Where Waves Forget is about a place, not on this earth, where all things are right and there is no suffering. I imagined this to be a beautiful beach with white sands where the sun always shines and time does not exist. I felt I almost experienced such a place during my time with the College Light Opera Company in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The beaches there are beautiful, and each summer I worked for their organization, I felt as though I were lifted out of time.

This piece is a meditation on our longing for such a place, and a reflection on the bittersweet sorrow which accompanies the knowledge that we must fade from this world to reach that paradise.

Where Waves Forget is warmly dedicated to the College Light Opera Company and the many friendships made there.

Text by Nicolas Bizub:

Lay us to rest
On white shores
Where sands forgive
And waves forget

Time is lost
And gone
Erased

Lay us to rest
Set us to sleep
Seal us in this wakeless dream

Soft and still
Never to wake

Time is lost
Gone

On white shores
Where sands forgive
And waves forget
