New (Old) Songs for Download

As I’ve planned for quite a while, I have finally made my Tim Gallant Anthology songs available for free download on this site.

These are collections that I recorded back in the mid-2000s, but were written much earlier. I used to (try to) sell them, but ultimately decided that music was never going to be an income stream, and I would much rather have the occasional person enjoy some of it than to have the songs collecting dust.

The present anthologies available are Vol 1: 1980–1983 (The Early Years); Vol 2 (1984); and Vol 3 (1985). I was born at the end of 1965, so you can do the math regarding my age when the songs were written. 🙂

Metanarrative Passion Mini-Suite

In view of it being Good Friday, I previously posted “Abandoned and Unknown.” Here is the entire Passion section of Metanarrative. (Metanarrative is my incomplete musical journey through the story of the Bible. The MP3 downloadable below are “composition versions”—i.e. recordings of various roughness that I made while composing the pieces. The Metanarrative music project site is here.)

Abandoned and Unknown

all alone against the darkened sky
the Lord of life prepares to die
and we don’t know him
he came to his own unrecognized
just like coming home, no welcome sign
why didn’t we know him

my God, my God
we hear him cry
why have you forsaken me
this cup of wrath
these darkened skies
hell has overtaken me

is this you, blessed teacher
the one I loved, the one I knew
is this you, are these your features
flowing blood from open wounds

– “Abandoned and Unknown,” from my incomplete Metanarrative project, a musical journey through the big story of the Bible. A rough MP3 version is available here.
