This selection is a commission by the Friends University Concert Choir in honor of Dr. David Weber and his 27 years as director of the Concert Choir. Ramsey has chosen the text of Antonio Machado, regarded by many as the finest poet of 20th century Spain, for this commission. Ramsey’s composition is fresh and full of musical tension and resolution. The composer has been very successful with regards to musical word painting. This selection is well worth a look.
