This setting of a poem by Howard Thurman, presented as an ethereal benediction for TTBB choir and piano, is a truly captivating moment in song. (SATB recording above).


When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music from the heart.
