Craig Hella Johnson is one of the most creative programmers, conductors and composers in America. This new work, with a text by the late young poet, Mattie Stepanek, is a simple and spacious setting of Mattie's text. Craig says that “this should be sung quietly and expressively, never hurried, as if walking on hallowed ground while singing.&rdquo.

    The bass doubles the tenor through most of the piece, but it is so high that in order to save their voices, I ended up having the basses sing only the parts where they divide. The last page requires a SSA "sub-choir" so be sure you have enough personnel...

    to accomplish this.
