Wonderful and fairly simple setting of words of Chief Seattle and Psalm 24. Clever use of unisons by the composer which brings a wonderful clarity to the text. Good dynamic contrasts and rhythmic interest in the choral writing. Piano and trumpet parts are crucial but also not difficult. Works well with college level, but accessible to many levels of choir. Timely, and teaches of respect for the native peoples of North America in an elegant and beautiful way.
