  • May 16, 2013 Beautiful piece

    This piece of Whitacre is one of his easier works to perform. Although the dynamics require some attention, the vocal parts themselves are not hard. Maybe the fact that there are no measures is a little bit difficult at first, but that also makes the text 'flow' better in the...
