This is one of two pieces recently commissioned by a consortium of 23 choirs through Graphite Publishing. Award-winning composer Christopher Harris is Director of Choral Activities at Arkansas Tech. His harmonically rich and expressive music has been featured by Cantus, among many others. This setting of a text by Houston poet Devondra Banks is quite manageable because of natural voice leading, a very supportive piano part, no divisions beyond four-part SATB, and significant (but effective) repetition.
