Sound Tracks | Piers Faccini Performs "A New Morning" | PBS

Duration: 02:46 (Full Program)
Program: Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders (Pilot)
Broadcast Date: Nov. 2, 2011

Accompanied only by some jostling bells, Piers Faccini stands alone in a garden and delivers a kind of ancient chant, part spiritual, part stripped down work song. It promises a new morning, a new life, but in a world where "all our words will soon be broken." Like a monk chanting in an old European monastery, Faccini invokes Biblical images of "seven days, seven nights, seven years, seven lives."
