Commissioned by the Indianapolis Women's Chorus, Pamela Blevins Hinkle, Music Director to celebrate the Chorus' first CD, "To Sing is to Fly"
This is a musical setting of a Joan Baez poem which the chorus has selected as its special inspirational motto. The words express an affirmation of life, of love and of beauty. The musical interpretation, with both the piano accompaniment and the vocal lines, endeavors to capture the flowing and triumphant spirit of song in flight.
