I chose this song because of the strong Czech heritage in my community. The text comes from a collection of poems written by children who, while incarcerated in the Terezin Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia during the Second World War, wrote of their experiences and their dreams. This is a very moving and beautiful piece. The audience, as well as my choir, loved it.
