This was my singers’ favorite piece this year. The words and music were originally written by Buffy Sainte-Marie. (You should find a recording of this to play for your choir if you use this piece – she has quite the “folky” voice!) The often unison verses open to the beautifully written three- and four-part refrain. The piano accompaniment looks simple but requires artistry and a high caliber of musicianship. The text is beautiful and it inspired many thoughtful conversations and writing projects with my choir. A must!
