Written for a combined chorus performance at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center with the composer conducting, this major work in three movements is both poignant and inspiring. Drawing inspiration from the words of Henry David Thoreau and quoting Simple Gifts, Zion’s Walls, and Materna, this is a classic Mark Hayes composition combining stylistic, contemporary writing with a classical foundation. With piano accompaniment, this will be powerful, but with either the full orchestration or the chamber orchestration (both downloadable), it will be unforgettable. The thoughtful and poetic libretto is by master lyricist, Pamela Stewart.
