AGNES

============================
Born a child of goodness.
Pure and humble girl;
Chose to live among the poor--
Agnes left the world.

Sent to teach Calcutta;
Safe within the walls;
Agnes saw another life--
Call within a call.

Not too far from those priviliged seats,
Just outside on city streets, 
The Master was calling!
So she donned blue to live anew--
That was the call, she knew.

Agnes came to hold them;
Agnes loved them all;
Agnes touched their hearts and souls;
Agnes lived the call.

Suffering and hurt were the ones she sought;
Outcast children, forgotten souls;
She called them "My brother!"
And they call her "mother"--
Mother Teresa in blue.

Born child of goodness,
Once a humble girl;
Gave her life to love the poor--
Agnes changed the world.

I don't have the style info, but it's just one of the basic bossa's.
I'm playing ePiano, and I created the little bass solo.

I really like this piece. You've done a nice job of keeping it interesting by inserting solos and some changes. The melody is quite strong. If you wanted to expand on this a bit and build it up, it could be even better. Excellent lyrics.

That's a nicely constructed piece.
Your melody is sweet.
The effects swallow the 1st syllable of the vocal in each new section.
If that's not intentional then you could probably mediate it a little.
Mother Theresa is, even now, a divisive and controversial character.


Cheers

Tano,
Interesting piece! A bit different from many of your tunes as it seems you took more straight approach in melody, yet, definitely has your signature. Listens very well. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

The melody begins simply and has nicely jazzy changes which coincide with the stronger feelings in the lyrics for those sections.
I learnt something about an iconic figure from your song- using her little known Christian name drew me in.
Very creative songwriting and well sung too!

I like the progression and the melody. The sax could use some reverb perhaps.

Nice job on the piano and vocals.

Oleman, Marty, thanks for listening. The idea I was going after was how the vision of a young girl could blossom into something that could impact millions. Thanks again for listening in.

Hello Tano Music,
Words reflecting the exceptional life of some people who are too few in this world. The song is tender and the orchestration pleasant. The sax and your voice maybe too far forward. But this is a personal opinion.

Good work

Kindly regard

Hi Tano ...

This is my favorite of all your songs I've had the privilege to hear. It's a strong message delivered with such gentleness and grace. Such a gorgeous song. My only comment would be to pout some reverb on the sax ... they always sound more expansive and robust when doing so. Even on gentle songs like this, it adds some depth to the over all sound during it's ride.

That was a special treat! Thank you for the listening pleasure. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Incredibly clever and provocative lyrics. The feel you have delivered is absolutely perfect.

From a musical perspective, the space you have provided fits absolutely perfectly.

This is a clever piece of songwriting. Really clever.
