Looking for something different in your programming? “Tabula Rasa” by Don Macdonald might be that selection! The Latin words “Tabula Rasa” translate as “blank slate.” The Spanish text speaks of a quiet moment between a mother and her child, when she sees the potential of this precious life she holds in her arms. An acknowledgment of her child as a “blank slate,” “Tabula Rasa” was the winning composition of the 2010 DaCapo Chamber Choir New Works composition in Canada.
