Pillar of Fire


My friend, colleague and fellow musician Wanda Stride was in my studio a few weeks ago to record the theme song for the upcoming meeting of the Bay of Quinte Conference of the United Church of Canada. Wanda had recently listened to an interview by Donalee Williams, minister at Fort McMurray, talking about the recent forest fire that caused the evacuation of the city. Wanda had begun forming a song in response to something that Donalee has said in the interview — that she now was struggling with the meaning and power of the words “fire and wind” that we use (often casually) on Pentecost Sunday. With Wanda’s chord structure I arranged this song using my studio software and Wanda laid down some vocal tracks. After some mixing and further editing, this is the result of our collaboration.
