Larry Nickel is the owner of Cypress Choral Music. He is a well-known Canadian composer and arranger. Composer Jan Garrett is a jazz singer and award winning songwriter. “I Dream of Rain” has a delightful lilting quality that will captivate your singers. Ms. Garrett was inspired by the hot dry year in 2002 in the western United States and also by the unrest in the political scene here in the United States and Iraq. “It was as if the whole world was on fire.”
