Few young people live closer together than do band members, as they work together, laugh together and cry together through the years of their involvement in musical activities. It is sad indeed when death strikes. River Songs was commissioned to commemorate the lives of two such young musicians (one white and one African-American). These two appropriate works, "Deep River," and "Shall We Gather at the River," were chosen as witness to our common bonds in this life and beyond. (duration 3:50).
