Title: The Unseen Hand
Artist: Renold & Savari
Label: CD Baby
UPC: 7640112200528
Genre: International

This is an original gospel oratorio written and performed with a touch of African ethnic and musical flavor. As in a traditional oratorio the music showcases all the elements of orchestral writing, choir and vocal soloists. Much room is also given for instrumental improvisation, African percussion, call & response chorus and vocal ad-libs that allow this live performance the necessary punch and suspense. The old and the new testaments of the Christian Bible inspire the message of the Unseen Hand's libretto. The comforting insight that God is gracious and active in the lives of human kind though seemingly unseen should be meaningful for anyone who finds themselves in the throes of life clouded by confusion and doubt. The lyrics convey the realities of hardship and the certainty of solutions that the bible apparently promises to be revealed to the true seeker. The work was performed by the Swiss Youth World Music Ensemble directed by Fritz K Renold. The ensemble is enhanced by top professional artists that also functioned as coaches and role models to the young musicians as they rehearsed for this production together for a week.
