This is a great day to show the success of our community. Julie Myers started a thread on lyrics a few months ago that led to a collaboration between Linda, Robert and me. We wanted to write a piece to express our deep emotions caused by the horrible events in Newtown, Connecticut. Another lyricist, Ken Matejka also joined us. We have a piece we hope will allow choirs and audiences to engage in the moving subject matter and bring a little healing to their souls.
This is particularly special to me as it is my first piece joining you on the Showcase. It changes the dynamics a little but may lead to me sharing some of my other works. I have held back to keep my advocacy from being self-serving. But I guess it is time.
I really enjoyed focusing on the melody while Robert handled the difficult parts and Linda and Ken wrote the lyrics. This was a lot of fun and very fulfilling.
