Cahaya Purnama

The idea of this piece came after my devotion to the moon. I always feel that the moon gives us a sense of intimacy, thus it brings hope to those who need it. This piece won the 2nd prize in secular music category in choral composition competition on Satya Dharma Gita National Choir Festival 2017.

This version was recorded at GPIB Sangkakala at February 16, 2019. I am so honoured to have Paramabira and Quaver Vocal Ensemble collaborating under the direction of Rainier Revireino.

CAHAYA PURNAMA

Gelap malam t’lah menyapa bertahta cah’ya sang purnama
Memupus kerinduan jiwa pada terang
Sang purnama bercahaya dan memukau para insan
Tak rela bila dia digantikan mentari fajar
Dan bintang menari, memuja rembulan yang bersinar terang
Sang purnama t’lah merasuk hayat dengan rasa cinta
Bintang-bintang berkelip di angkasa
menyerukan pujian untuk sang purnama
Sang purnama merajut asa, memadu kasih, menggugah jiwa
Sang purnama ciptakan asa
Cahaya purnama,
Cahayanya penuh cinta
menyalakan pengarapanku.
