Hungry For Heaven: A Musical Opus
This project is an internet collaboration of David Gómez Sanz (Segovia, Spain), Alberto Ayuso Domingo (Segovia, Spain) and Richard Cecil Schletty (St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S.A.). Hungry For Heaven is an hour-long concept album which deals with evil, suffering, the silence of God, the restless spirit, faith, salvation, selfless love, Christian discipleship, and the necessity of right relationships with the hierarchy of creation.
Music styling ranges from classic orchestral to acoustic folk to celestial to progressive rock. The vocal stylings, spanning bass to tenor registers, are gritty yet soothing (like wet sand in the palm of your hand). Sometimes folk-like, sometimes operatic, always engaging. Words can be understood.
Commentary by David:
“Hungry for Heaven” is a journey of the human being through basic and primitive questions. The searching for the answers beyond our physical existence. The silence of God, man facing death, life after life. Once a man is aware of his finitude, does everything reach a meaning?
Some people are blessed with the grace of joy while others are still looking for a light in the darkness. Some people find strength in the pain while others find sharks in a pool. The incomprehensible reasons for our suffering are washed away in the Cross of Jesus Christ. Our pain is the pain of God. And He cures the scars of our souls. He embraces our perfect imperfections.
Hungry For Heaven is about our claim to the sky, our cry to the infinite horizon. In our hunger, can we come to feel His presence?
