Give us this day

Scudding clouds of crimson flush
author of text

I was lucky to have a poem written for the occasion by Tony Vincent Isaacs. Tony had previously put words to the music of Scott Joplin for the Swingle Singers 'Rags and all that Jazz' album. For this new poem, called Give us this day, I've written a very simple four-part setting so that the words (and their important message} are quickly understood.
