Building on the word โ€œApolloโ€ and the naming of those NASA missions, I now want to draw special attention to a lyric thatโ€™s sung twice in this movement to drive the point home about the political and world scene during the Apollo 8 flight and place this lyric in spiritual context of this mission.

Lyrics (Excerpt)

๐˜ผ๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™š ๐™จ๐™–๐™ž๐™ก ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™™๐™–๐™ง๐™  ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง ๐™ข๐™ค๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฎ๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™˜๐™ก๐™ž๐™ข๐™—

This lyric is sung for a second time and delivered by the extraordinary voice of tenor soloist Daniel Koek. We will record his powerful and majestic vocal line this Saturday at Abbey Road Studios, where this solo leads into the final chorus for "Earthrise".

We will examine this lyric from the historical context of this Apollo 8 mission.

The scene that underscored the Apollo mission in the 60s was a dark and anxious period for many people, so when the Astronauts launched, they departed a divided world with distressed and weary souls.

So the lyrics ๐˜ผ๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™š ๐™จ๐™–๐™ž๐™ก ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™™๐™–๐™ง๐™  not only imply the ๐™™๐™–๐™ง๐™  skies of space but is to recognize the ๐™™๐™–๐™ง๐™  times and tension on the planet; hearts were hurting; it was a grief-stricken globe they were sailing from.

And it's interesting to note that when one explores the definition of the word Apollo, it means;

โ€œ๐™œ๐™ค๐™™ ๐™ค๐™› ๐™ก๐™ž๐™œ๐™๐™ฉ, ๐™ข๐™ช๐™จ๐™ž๐™˜, ๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™š๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ฎ, ๐™๐™š๐™–๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ, ๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฅ๐™๐™š๐™˜๐™ฎ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™—๐™š๐™–๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ฎโ€

So this exquisite definition played so poetically to the spiritual outcome of that mission.

It was a mission that gifted the world that uplifting image because we all owned a piece of that view, and it offered the urgently needed universal balm and spiritual nectar for the desperate souls back on Earth.

Friday's blog will explore THE MOONS SYMPHONY's challenges towards its symphonic launch date, but for now, let's explore the last moments in this lunar adventure through the video excerpt, which delivers a powerful message for humanity and becomes the crowning moment in THE MOONS SYMPHONY experience.
