If Love Could Sing

Rl Randolph

Replete with entertaining illustrations and glorious photos of natural wonders, the full-color adventure story If Love Could Sing: Stories of a Hundred Road Trips details the trials and triumphs of a self-sustaining traveling choir. Assembled from a dozen different nations and recording four full long-play records along the way, the singers covered four hundred thousand miles in only three years, performing hundreds of times in a multiplicity of languages. They featured musical styles from classical through rock through traditional international folk genres. Audiences everywhere --- one of them numbering 1.2 million --- were thrilled to hear their own languages sung by representatives of countries they'd never have expected to hear from. Yet the music and stage work was only one aspect of the adventures experienced by artists with a passion for sharing culture for the sake of world peace. The vicissitudes of high-pressure travel through lightning and snow, icy winds, and occasionally nonstop hail --- not to mention occasionally merciless heat waves and endless exhaustion --- are another whole story. Here's a book where you meet a lot of new people while learning more about music and all the amazing cultural realities you encounter on the road. If Love Could Sing records and reports a fascinating history worth reading about.
