A Tapestry of Love This year, the Filipino Voice Symphony (FVS) celebrates its tenth year of promoting and performing a cappella music here in Singapore.

Join us as we commemorate this momentous occasion with a celebration of the various facets of love depicted in our repertoire of songs especially selected to whet your aural appetite for delectable choral music.

ABOUT FVS

FVS : X / TAPESTRY OF LOVE / 5

About FVS The Filipino Voice Symphony or “FaVS” in short, is an all-Filipino community choir established in 2009 by Singapore-based Filipinos who are drawn together by their passion for music. The choir’s membership consists of Filipinos who came from different choral and professional backgrounds. For the past ten years, FaVS has been performing choral works in various events in Singapore. Among the group’s notable performances were staged at The Esplanade - Theatres by the Bay, The Esplanade Concourse, SOTA Studio Theatre and Aliwal Arts Centre. Since 2010, the group has been under the musical direction of Gladys Torrado. In 2010, FaVS eagerly took on a different challenge by joining the Singapore A Cappella Championships under the Pop Choir Category and won first place. The Filipino Association of Singapore, shortly thereafter, awarded FaVS a certificate of recognition for the group’s achievement in the field of performing arts. Believing that music transcends languages and cultural barriers, FaVS continuously explores the different sounds, colors, and styles of various musical pieces as reflected in the group’s repertoire of classical, contemporary pop, folk, traditional, sacred, and Original Pilipino Music (OPM).

O NATA LUX Morten Lauridsen O nata lux de lumine, Jesu redemptor saeculi, Dignare clemens supplicum Laudes precesque sumere. Qui carne quondam contegi Dignatus es pro perditis, Nos membra confer effici Tui beati corporis. O Light born of Light, Jesus, redeemer of the world, with loving-kindness deign to receive suppliant praise and prayer. Thou who once deigned to be clothed in flesh for the sake of the lost, grant us to be members of thy blessed body.

A MILLION DREAMS From the film “The Greatest Showman“ Benj Pasek / Justin Paul, arr. Mac Huff I close my eyes and I can see The world that’s waiting up for me That I call my own Through the dark, through the door Through where no one’s been before But it feels like home They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind I don’t care, I don’t care, so call me crazy We can live in a world that we design ‘Cause every night I lie in bed The brightest colors fill my head A million dreams are keeping me awake I think of what the world could be A vision of the one I see A million dreams is all it’s gonna take A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make There’s a house we can build Every room inside is filled With things from far away The special things I compile Each one there to make you smile On a rainy day They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy They can say, they can say we’ve lost our minds I don’t care, I don’t care if they call us crazy Runaway to a world that we design

Every night I lie in bed The brightest colors fill my head A million dreams are keeping me awake I think of what the world could be A vision of the one I see A million dreams is all it’s gonna take A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make However big, however small Let me be part of it all Share your dreams with me You may be right, you may be wrong But say that you’ll bring me along To the world you see To the world I close my eyes to see I close my eyes to see Every night I lie in bed The brightest colors fill my head A million dreams are keeping me awake A million dreams, a million dreams I think of what the world could be A vision of the one I see A million dreams is all it’s gonna take A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make For the world we’re gonna make

LET MY LOVE BE HEARD ‘A Prayer’ by Alfred Noyes, Jake Runestead Angels, where you soar Up to God’s own light, Take my own lost bird On your hearts tonight; And as grief once more Mounts to heaven and sings, Let my love be heard Whispering in your wings.

WHEN YOU BELIEVE from the film “The Prince of Egypt” Stephen Schwartz, arr. Audrey Snyder Many nights we’ve prayed With no proof anyone could hear In our hearts a hopeful song We barely understood Now we are not afraid Although we know there’s much to fear We were moving mountains Long before we knew we could There can be miracles When you believe Though hope is frail It’s hard to kill Who knows what miracles You can achieve When you believe Somehow you will You will when you believe

In this time of fear When prayer so often proved in vain Hope seemed like the summer birds Too swiftly flown away Yet now I’m standing here With heart so full I can’t explain Seeking faith and speaking words I never thought I’d say There can be miracles When you believe Though hope is frail It’s hard to kill Who knows what miracles You can achieve When you believe Somehow you will You will when you believe

SOMEONE LIKE YOU From the musical Jekyll and Hyde Arthur L. Porter, arr. Fidel Calalang, Jr. I peer through windows Watch life go by Dream of tomorrow And wonder why The past is holding me Keeping life at bay I wander lost in yesterday Wanting to fly But scared to try

So many secrets I long to share All I have needed Is someone there To help me see a world I’ve never seen before A love to open every door To set me free So I can soar

But if someone like you Found someone like me Then suddenly Nothing would ever be the same My heart would take wing And I’d feel so alive! If someone like you Found me!

If someone like you Found someone like me Then suddenly Nothing would ever be the same There’d be a new way to live A new life to love If someone like you Found me Oh, if someone like you Found someone like me Then suddenly Nothing would ever be the same My heart would take wing And I’d feel so alive! If someone like you Loved me!

LARONG PAMBATA SUITE: I. NANAY, TATAY Ily Matthew Maniano Nanay, tatay, gusto kong tinapay Ate, kuya, gusto kong kape Lahat ng gusto ko ay susundin ninyo Ang magkamali ay pipingutin ko Mother, Father, I want bread Sister, Brother, I want coffee Anyone who disobeys Will have their ears twisted.

ANAK “CHILD” Ferdinand Pascual Aguilar, Ralph Hoffman Nang isilang ka sa mundong ito Laking tuwa ng magulang mo At ang kamay nila ang iyong ilaw

The day you were born to this world Your parents were full of joy And their arms are your light

At ang nanay at tatay mo’y Di malaman ang gagawin Minamasdan pati pagtulog mo

And your mother and father Worry and don’t know what to do Watch over you even in your sleep

At sa gabi’y napupuyat ang iyong nanay Sa pagtimpla ng gatas mo At sa umaga nama’y kalong ka Ng iyong amang tuwang-tuwa sa iyo

And in the night, a sleepless night, your mother Is still awake to prepare your milk And in the morning you are in the lap Of your father, who is so joyful because of you

Ngayon nga ay malaki ka na Nais mo’y maging malaya Di man sila payag Walang magagawa

Now you are all grown up You desire to be independent Even if your parents forbid, they can’t stop you


SONG LYRICS & TRANSLATIONS

Ikaw nga ay biglang nagbago Naging matigas ang iyong ulo At ang payo nila’y sinuway mo

FVS : X / TAPESTRY OF LOVE / 21

Isn’t it you that changed a lot Disobeyed them, remained stubborn And you did not follow their advice

Di mo man lang inisip na You did not take the time Ang kanilang ginagawa’y para sa iyo To think about all the things they’ve done for you Pagkat ang nais mo’y Masunod ang layaw mo For you desire, only what is pleasurable Di mo sila pinapansin You just ignored them Nagdaan pa ang mga araw And the days have passed At ang landas mo’y naligaw And you took a wrong turn in life Ikaw ay nalulong sa masamang bisyo You are imprisoned in a horrible vice At ang una mong nilapitan Ang iyong inang lumuluha At ang tanong, “anak, ba’t ka nagkaganyan”

And you approach Your dear crying mother And she asks “Child, what happened to you?”

At ang iyong mata’y biglang lumuha ng di mo pinapansin Nagsisisi at sa isip mo’y Nalaman mong ika’y nagkamali

And your eyes immediately shed tears Without you noticing You are regretful and realize That you were at fault

BAYAN KO “MY HOMELAND” Jose Corazon de Jesus / Constancio de Guzman, arr. Ramon Lijauco, Jr. Ang bayan kong Pilipinas, lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak. Pag-ibig ang sa kaniyáng palad nag-alay ng ganda’t dilág. At sa kaniyáng yumi at ganda, dayuhan ay nahalina. Bayan ko, binihag ka, nasadlak sa dusa.

Philippines, my country, my homeland, Gold and flowers in her heart abound, Blessings on her fate did love bestow, Sweet beauty’s grace and splendor’s glow. How her charms so kind and tender Drove the stranger to desire her; Land of mine, in fetters kept, You suffered as we wept.

Ibon mang may layang lumipad, kulungin mo at umiiyak! Bayan pa kayáng sakdal-dilag, ang ‘di magnasang makaalpas? Pilipinas kong mimutya, pugad ng luhá ko’t dalita, aking adhika: makita kang sakdal laya!

Birds that freely claim the skies to fly When imprisoned mourn, protest and cry! How more deeply will a land most fair, Yearn to break the chains of sad despair? Philippines, my life’s sole burning fire, Cradle of my tears, my misery; All that I desire: To see you rise, forever free!
