    I tried out the song with my sight readers, and I must admit we had a slight problem with the rhythm. Once we went over the song a couple of times, and I added a drummer, then everything came together. My choir really like the song, and some even danced...

    to the music. My small group will be performing this song. I am confident it will be well appreciated. I really like the writing and the music was easy to read.
