June 2020, and we are three months into Covid-19. The music for this song had haunted me for weeks. At first, I felt like it was a song about the heart, but words would not come. One morning I awoke to the melody going through my head. This was not new. However, the words came as well and they were very familiar. I instantly went to my Hymnal and found that they worked very well with all of the music I had already written. This is the result of that experience.
Is there anyone who was not somehow changed from Covid? It did not come knocking at our door, but I was definitely behind that door doing things I’d struggled to find time to do before Covid. This melody haunted me for a few days and I finally got it to paper. What else could it be called? “Isolation” seemed to be very fitting.
