One Heart, Many Faces

Lyrics & Chords

Here’s my brief review (written last year) of “One Heart Many Faces”, a cut from the album Called by Loved:
The song creates a genre that could forshadow cosmic unity between the sacred and the profane, faith and reason, heart and mind. Its melody sways from a typical soulful pinoy-hum inflected by a forlorn voice to a more emphatic, confidence-filled hymn, marked by heightened voices and polyphony of instruments. A theme song called paradoxically, “One heart, many faces” strides along this route: from a lonely sound of a singular, undefined flute as if in a far-away mission land a la Morricone’s The Mission, to the African sounding drums, ba dam ba’s of Arnoldus Co. and to the syllabaric o-a-o of the reverend sisters of the Holy Spirit… With the thought alone that the Pink Sisters append their voices to the praise part of the song could make one feel “co-canonized.” The songs’ spirit moves from lament to praise; from “wounded” to “graced”. – Fr. Randy Flores, SVD
