    I had sung this years ago and somehow misplaced my copy, so I needed a replacement. It is one of my favorite solos, and it is the first song in Bernstein's Mass. Though it is called "A Simple Song," it is fairly difficult because it requires one to sing...

    I have always loved this song. It's one that I have fond memories of from high school. I sang it in competition and have always been able to pull it right back to the foreground when I'm looking for a good song to sing to myself. It really...

    is a simple song...perfectly composed by Bernstein for MASS. Absolutly worth a try, it's has major ear worm potential so be careful! : )
