This Navajo Prayer is sung first in unison and then as a four-part canon. The text works well as a final blessing, a choral procession or an anthem of gratitude for the beauty of creation. It is easy to enhance this piece with drums and rain sticks. The simplicity of the haunting melody allows this piece to be very effective for choirs of all levels.
