Description:Given my love for
Rentand adoration of Jonathan Larson, it was only a matter of time before I posted this. I love this song because it has a beautiful, haunting melody which stands well on its own but when combined in counterpoint with itself, it weaves a wonderful tapestry of harmony that is soul-touching.
Will I?is a four-part round, sung by the members of the Life Support group as they contemplate how being diagnosed with HIV/AIDS has affected them and wonder what will happen in the uncertain (short) time they have left to live. This version is transposed down from the original key of G flat major to E flat major.
Listen to the piano instrumental:
