Ruth's captivating setting truly captures the distinctly Asian flavor of this ancient Japanese text with its haunting melody and simple harmonies, featuring open fourths and fifths. The Japanese lyrics, which alternate with the English translation, are easily learned, and both a pronunciation guide and translation are included. Reminiscent of her best-selling "In This Ancient House" (15/2407H), you won't want your singers to miss experiencing this creative-programming, multicultural gem!
