Uplifting from the opening statement, this choral setting elicits the exact words on the page. The part-writing is creative and accessible, using known melodic motifs in both vocal lines. The symbiotic balance of Naomi Shihab Nye’s playful and expansive text with Hagen’s thoughtful writing brings a natural buoyancy to the tone. Suitable for intermediate choirs and any level.
