Although, the relevance of each genre unified the importance of demanding the creator in our lives. From my perspective, each piece is a structure uniquely. Each melody is referring to needing the guidance of the lord. These songs are ties to my theme because they all are searching for the same relief from someone and that someone to me is God.
