“The End For Which the World Was Made” by Celebration Symphony Orchestra [a review]

September 5, 2016

This is it

I have finally realized

all the glory that’s in me

is only your glory.

So sings Andrew Fry on his project Celebration Symphony Orchestra. The music of Fry and his makeshift group of friends and family, reminds me of one those dark nights of the soul—or at least the morning after—where after a long hour, day, week of apathy or anger, the prodigal finally turns around and lays it bare. It’s Jonah’s dive into vicious waters. It’s Jacob wrestling with the angel.  It’s the lonely sinner, ceding to grace, allowing some holy light into the dirty old barn of his/her soul. It’s all of these things, riding over wild, beautiful melodies.
