Poem by Howard Thurman, "When the Song of the Angels Is Stilled".
A rhythmically vital setting of Howard Thurman's magnificent poem about the true "work of Christmas." Informed by South African part-writing and the rhythmic impulse of African-American spirituals, this piece lends a powerful relevance to Christmas which extends far beyond Epiphany.
TTBB arrangement created in collaboration with Willi Zwozdesky, for Vancouver Men's Chorus Named: One of Creator Magazine's "Honored 10" Anthems (SATB version)
