Here is a sound and music collage reacting to the urgency with which the Apostle Paul spoke to people about what lies ahead. The beats are made from chopped vocal sounds and the voices join Paul from around the world saying “The day is almost here.”

Listen/Download The Day is Almost here

The focus of this piece is Romans 13:12, “The night is nearly over, the day is almost here.” Additionally twenty-four other passages from Paul’s letters related to this theme are incorporated in the piece. Additionally there is a brief line of poetry from Christy Bagasao (If the battle ends…). We imagine him nearing the end of his life, racing forward while countless thoughts and phrases race through his head from years of traveling and preaching.

This piece is part of a larger theater work called Project Paul. Click Here to learn more.
