The Wanting Memories Project

The Wanting Memories Project

We have all lost someone we love and wondered how our lives could go on without them–without their touch, their encouragement and their wisdom. In this song, composer Ysaye Barnwell gives voice to our deepest longings to remember our departed loved ones and to find the strength to carry their deepest lessons into our lives now. “Songs have intention in themselves but when we sing together, we define who we are,” says Ysaye Barnwell, who is also a professor, an activist and a 30 year member of Sweet Honey in the Rock vocal ensemble.
