To further achieve these goals, the College has recently established the J. Power Center for Liberal Arts in the World to help students identify and pursue opportunities outside of the classroom, and to better articulate the value of these opportunities as part of their Holy Cross education.
Skip to main content. A few examples: As preparation for their lives as leaders in artistic, civic, professional, religious, and scientific realms, students learn to approach problems from a multitude of perspectives, and to take creative intellectual risks in seeking solutions.
To do so, our students must forge connections between ideas and fields of study that are often assumed to be separate. Christian concept. Dove and cross Vector. Religious concept. Easter background.

They also purchased extra equipment, which included new speakers, a PA system , a track mixing desk with a four channel quadraphonic output, and a custom-built lighting rig. Nine tonnes of kit was transported in three lorries ; this would be the first time the band had taken an entire album on tour. The new material premiered at The Dome in Brighton , on 20 January ,  and after the commercial failure of Medicine Head's album the title was changed back to the band's original preference.
It was so completely understanding and musically questioning. The new material was performed in the same order in which it was eventually sequenced on the album release; differences included the lack of synthesisers in tracks such as " On the Run ", and Bible readings replaced by Clare Torry 's vocals on " The Great Gig in the Sky ". Pink Floyd's lengthy tour through Europe and North America gave them the opportunity to make continual improvements to the scale and quality of their performances.
After a series of dates in North America, the band flew to London to begin recording, from 24 May to 25 June. More concerts in Europe and North America followed before the band returned on 9 January to complete the album. The Dark Side of the Moon built upon experiments Pink Floyd had attempted in their previous live shows and recordings, but lacks the extended instrumental excursions which, according to critic David Fricke , had become characteristic of the band after founding member Syd Barrett left in Gilmour, Barrett's replacement, later referred to those instrumentals as "that psychedelic noodling stuff", and with Waters cited 's Meddle as a turning-point towards what would be realised on the album.
The Dark Side of the Moon ' s lyrical themes include conflict, greed, the passage of time, death, and insanity, the latter inspired in part by Barrett's deteriorating mental state.
Each side of the album is a continuous piece of music. The five tracks on each side reflect various stages of human life, beginning and ending with a heartbeat, exploring the nature of the human experience, and according to Waters "empathy".
Opening with the sound of cash registers and loose change, the first track on side two, " Money ", mocks greed and consumerism using tongue-in-cheek lyrics and cash-related sound effects. The album ends with " Eclipse ", which espouses the concepts of alterity and unity, while forcing the listener to recognise the common traits shared by humanity. The band were assigned staff engineer Alan Parsons , who had worked as assistant tape operator on their album Atom Heart Mother and gained experience as a recording engineer on the Beatles ' Abbey Road and Let It Be.
The first track recorded, on 1 June, was "Us and Them", followed six days later by "Money". Waters had created effects loops from recordings of various money-related objects, including coins thrown into a mixing bowl taken from his wife's pottery studio; these were rerecorded to take advantage of the band's decision to record a quadraphonic mix of the album Parsons has since expressed dissatisfaction with the result of this mix, attributed to a lack of time and the paucity of available multi-track tape recorders.
A foursome of female vocalists was assembled to sing on "Brain Damage", "Eclipse" and "Time", and saxophonist Dick Parry was booked to play on "Us and Them" and "Money". The album features metronomic sound effects during "Speak to Me", and tape loops opening "Money". Mason created a rough version of "Speak to Me" at his home, before completing it in the studio.
The track serves as an overture and contains cross-fades of elements from other pieces on the album. A piano chord, replayed backwards, serves to augment the build-up of effects, which are immediately followed by the opening of "Breathe". Mason received a rare solo composing credit for "Speak to Me". The sound effects on "Money" were created by splicing together Waters' recordings of clinking coins, tearing paper, a ringing cash register, and a clicking adding machine, which were used to create a 7-beat effects loop later adapted to four tracks in order to create a "walk around the room" effect in quadraphonic presentations of the album.
Along with the conventional rock band instrumentation, Pink Floyd added prominent synthesisers to their sound. They also devised and recorded unconventional sounds, such as an assistant engineer running around the studio's echo chamber during "On the Run" ,  and a specially treated bass drum made to simulate a human heartbeat during "Speak to Me", "On the Run", "Time" and "Eclipse".
This heartbeat is most prominent as the intro and the outro to the album, but it can also be heard sporadically on "Time" and "On the Run". The recordings were initially created as a quadraphonic test by Parsons, who recorded each timepiece at an antique clock shop. Several tracks, including "Us and Them" and "Time", demonstrated Richard Wright's and David Gilmour's ability to harmonise their voices. To take advantage of this, Parsons utilised studio techniques such as the double tracking of vocals and guitars, which allowed Gilmour to harmonise with himself.
The engineer also made prominent use of flanging and phase shifting effects on vocals and instruments, odd trickery with reverb ,  and the panning of sounds between channels most notable in the quadraphonic mix of "On the Run", when the sound of the Hammond B3 organ played through a Leslie speaker rapidly swirls around the listener.
The album's credits include Clare Torry , a session singer and songwriter, and a regular at Abbey Road. She had worked on pop material and numerous cover albums, and after hearing one of those albums Parsons invited her to the studio to sing on Wright's composition "The Great Gig in the Sky". She declined this invitation as she wanted to watch Chuck Berry perform at the Hammersmith Odeon , but arranged to come in on the following Sunday.
The band explained the concept behind the album, but were unable to tell her exactly what she should do. Gilmour was in charge of the session, and in a few short takes on a Sunday night Torry improvised a wordless melody to accompany Wright's emotive piano solo. The case was settled out of court for an undisclosed sum, with all post pressings crediting Wright and Torry jointly. Snippets of voices between and over the music are another notable feature of the album.
During recording sessions, Waters recruited both the staff and the temporary occupants of the studio to answer a series of questions printed on flashcards.
The interviewees were placed in front of a microphone in a darkened Studio 3,  and shown such questions as "What's your favourite colour? Questions such as "When was the last time you were violent? Waters asked him about a violent encounter he had had with another motorist, and Manifold replied " His second wife, Patricia "Puddie" Watts now Patricia Gleason , was responsible for the line about the "geezer" who was "cruisin' for a bruisin ' " used in the segue between "Money" and "Us and Them", and the words "I never said I was frightened of dying" heard halfway through "The Great Gig in the Sky".
Perhaps the most notable responses "I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do: I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? As a matter of fact it's all dark" came from the studios' Irish doorman, Gerry O'Driscoll.
Following the completion of the dialogue sessions, producer Chris Thomas was hired to provide "a fresh pair of ears". Thomas's background was in music, rather than engineering. In fact, there were never any hints that they were later going to fall out.A full list of Christian Metal bands. Updated as often as possible. There is no marking of genre or years active.
