WEFOUNDThe Song of the Earth A Synthesis of the Scientific and Spiritual Worldviews 4 Keys to Sustainable Communities Volume 1


Das Lied von der Erde ("The Song of the Earth") is a composition for two voices and orchestra written by the Austrian composer Gustav Mahler between 1908 and 1909. Described as a symphony when published, it comprises six songs for two singers who alternate movements.

Mahler specified the two singers should be a tenor and an alto , or else a tenor and a baritone if an alto is not available. [1]

Mahler composed this work following the most painful period in his life, and the songs address themes such as those of living, parting and salvation.

"Earth Song" was accompanied by a lavish music video shot in four geographical regions. The video centered on the destruction and rebirth of Earth and went on to receive a Grammy nomination in 1997. [3] The song went number one in the United Kingdom, and was the nation's number-one Christmas single in 1995. It also topped the charts in Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland while peaking at number two in France, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Scotland. Jackson went on to receive recognition from various animal and environmental organizations.

In 2011 the song was paired-up with the poem "Planet Earth" (previously released on Michael Jackson's This Is It , in 2009) and released as a song in the remix album Immortal . Following a rehearsal of the song in preparation for the This Is It concerts shortly after midnight on June 25, 2009, Jackson would suddenly die later that day, making "Earth Song" the final song ever performed by Michael Jackson.

Following the illness and death of Ryan White , Jackson helped draw public attention to HIV/AIDS, something that was still controversial at the time. He publicly pleaded with the Clinton Administration at Bill Clinton 's Inaugural Gala to give more money to HIV/AIDS charities and research. He would go on to perform the song " Gone Too Soon " for White and other victims of the illness. [9] [10]
