The Sound of Silence
(Intersection / St. Michael’s)

“The words of the prophets…are whispered in the sounds of silence.” -Paul Simon

What does “the sound of silence” mean to you?

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls”
And whispered in the sounds of silence

This cover of The Sound of Silence was recorded and produced by The Intersection Band from St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in New York City, NY. This episode was produced by Rev. Jim Keat. Background tracks include Button Mushrooms by Podington Bear
