Background Notes

In speaking with a couple who had deep concern over one of their adult children, they mentioned to Sarah that knowing that their daughter was baptized was the single thought that gave them any solace.  That statement stayed with us: we hadn’t often considered the sacrament of baptism from the perspective of how others might take comfort in someone else’s baptism.  It also prompted us to consider more deeply the significance of baptism across a lifespan – from infancy through various times of adulthood – and the meaning of this unwavering promise signified by the phrase “marked and sealed.” Cooper’s hope was to create music that felt simple, childlike, and comforting – perhaps evocative of a mother singing gently to a child at night.
