Ensemble Trame Sonore performing Elizabeth Raum’s Searching for Sophia
MOTHER, Grant me a voice, Oh Mother of Life. Don’t let them silence me, those who would take away my name, my children, my place in existence… those who would denounce my very soul; for I have much to say, I have much to do.
I feel the life stir within my body, and though it be agony to let it forth, I would willingly suffer to allow that life to exist, to grow and thrive. But it must know that I was its mother.
