A Native American Prayer by Nolan E. Schmit. For SATB choir. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-1695H).
This stunning original is based on a beautiful and powerful Native American text that calls upon the Great Spirit to grant strength and wisdom to each of us as we journey through our lives. The prayer requests that we live our lives humbly, always seeking the divine, with utmost appreciation and respect for the world around us. This setting uses traditional western harmonies to enrich the lyrical melody, which is reminiscent of Native American music and plainsong. A splendid addition to multicultural repertoire and creative programming needs.
