The Gifts continue to come in huge heaps my friends!!!! ...as long as this works.
One of the most beloved pieces in all of American music. Simply put. It's beautifully constructed. It's elegantly voiced. The piano part is hauntingly plain.
It's pure magic. Eric loves it. I love it. As a solo work, or as a choral work, it just is a masterful work by one of our country's most revered composers. And we get to sing it! I cannot wait to hear this choir perform it!
