flute choir

A modern American composer, he is also a published author.  This piece imagines the tune in the context of a soul entering Heaven for the first time.  It begins with a meditative and peaceful introduction that is almost minimalist.  That gives way to two choruses of the familiar melody, the first presented in a stately chorale-style setting, the second as gospel-infused, rich with complex harmonies and a driving sense of swing.
