When Robert Scholtz did this piece with the 2001-2002 All-State Men’s Choir, I was struck by its simplicity. As I grew into the piece, I soon realized that this element is the strength of this arrangement. A cappella and for TTBB, all lines are easy to sing (Tenor 1 has an optional high A on the last note). The harmonic flavor is very simple, with an elegance to it. I found it a rather endearing piece, providing a welcome change from the frantic (and very engaging) arrangements of Moses Hogan and others. This score will captivate the audience from the start to the end with its mesmerizing ease and reflective message.
