KIM ANDRÉ ARNESEN: Even when He is silent (arr. wind band)
Instr.: Christian Aftreth Eriksen
(N.M.O. 14354B / Stemmesett)
Even when He is silent was originally written for SATB, TTBB and SSAA choir, and commissioned by The St. Olaf Festival
(Olavsfestdagene) in Trondheim, Norway, in 2011.
The text was written by an anonymous writer, a prisoner in Germany during World War 2 and was found written on a wall:
I believe in the sun even when it’s not shining.
I believe in love even when I feel it not.
I believe in God even when He is silent.
The original versions for choir are available from Walton Music and Norsk Musikforlag
