lyrics

Altitude

Not to be conquered by these headlong days,
But to stand free: to keep the mind at brood
On life's deep meaning, nature's altitude
Of loveliness, and time's mysterious ways;
At every thought every thought and deed to clear the haze
Out of our eyes, out of our eyes considering only this,

What man, what life, what love, what beauty is,
What woman, what life, what love, what beauty is,

What beauty... What beauty is,
This is to live... This is to live...

Though strife, ill fortune, and harsh human need
Beat down the soul, at moments blind and dumb with agony
yet, patience-there shall come
Many great voices from life's outer sea,
Hours of strange triumph, and, when few men heed,
Murmurs and glimpses of eternity.


What man, what life, what love, what beauty is,
What woman, what life, what love, what beauty is,

What beauty... What beauty is,
This is to live... This is to live...
--
Lyrics based on a poem by Archibald Lampman (1861-1899)

October Gold, an alt-folk duo based out of Montreal, is the latest collaboration of singer/songwriter Kit Soden and his partner in music (and life), violinist Aliza Thibodeau. This marriage of Soden's folksy roots and Thibodeau's classical sensibilities has created a unique sound described as "painting your imagination with song."

October Gold recently released their sophomore album in July 2013.
