Song background:

02/21/2022: The Dorian section (verse 3) was updated because I was not as satisfied with it. Those that downloaded it before then might want the newer version.

This arrangement is in the key of C. It starts in C Minor (Aeolian), then progresses to C Dorian (mostly) for verse 3, C Mixolydian for verse 4, C Major (Ionian) for the chorus following verse 4, C Lydian for verse 5, then returns to C Minor for the final chorus. I wanted an arrangement that started in a minor key like the original hymn, and then went through progressively "brighter" modes before returning to end back in minor.

This text is originally in reference to the Children of Israel about to cross over into the land of Canaan. The larger metaphor and theme is one of progressing through mortality towards the hope and promise of heavenly life. With that larger context, I also envisioned this as applying to Mother Eve after her courageous choice to initiate mortality and commence the difficult, uncomfortable, and sometimes miserable journey of growth, development, and progression by partaking of the forbidden fruit; her then entreating Adam to join her in that journey; and then also entreating us to choose to join with them and journey together on the path of growth, development and progression towards the hope and promise of heavenly life. On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand by Jason Hunsaker

 

Versión en español. (La reproducción debería sonar mejor con auriculares).

Este arreglo está en la tonalidad de do. Comienza en do menor (eolio), luego progresa a do dórico (principalmente) para el verso 3, do mixolidio para el verso 4, do mayor (jónico) para el coro que sigue al verso 4, do lidio para el verso 5, luego regresa a do menor para el coro final. Quería un arreglo que comenzara en una tonalidad menor como el himno original, y luego pasara por modos progresivamente "más brillantes" antes de volver a terminar en una tonalidad menor.

Este texto originalmente se refiere a los Hijos de Israel a punto de cruzar a la tierra de Canaán. La metáfora y el tema más amplio es el de progresar a través de la mortalidad hacia la esperanza y la promesa de la vida celestial. Con ese contexto más amplio, también imaginé que esto se aplicaría a la Madre Eva después de su valiente elección de iniciar la mortalidad y comenzar el viaje difícil, incómodo y, a veces, miserable de crecimiento, desarrollo y progresión al participar del fruto prohibido; ella luego le ruega a Adán que se una a ella en ese viaje; y luego también instándonos a elegir unirnos a ellos y caminar juntos por el camino del crecimiento, el desarrollo y la progresión hacia la esperanza y la promesa de la vida celestial.
