“Our country boils with anger. Bullets fly, friendships shatter. Life is short. But life, it matters. Come, you belong with me.”
Written by Minnesota composer Jocelyn Hagen on a commission for Garrett Lathe and the Youth Chorale of Central Minnesota, this is warmly accessible and expressive choral writing with an elegant piano accompaniment. These words by Marisha Chamberlain resonate today with a timely message of hope and finding a place to belong.
