Song Details

In rich three-part harmony, the vocal lines move homophonically over a simple chordal piano accompaniment. Inherent are wonderful opportunities for the conductor and singers to use rubato to shape the phrases. The original version of this piece (2000) was an a cappella arrangement. A year later, Aline added the piano accompaniment.
