A good Summer solstice song, this has a chorus for all. The verses can certainly be sung by all as well, but might be done by a soloist or traded between various groups. Several more orchestrated arrangements, including SATB and SAA are available from Jim Scott.

This ¾ tune in a swinging gospel style has gotten wide acclaim and use as a congregational hymn in the Unitarian Universalist Church as well as some other denominations. This choral arrangement adds some counterpoint and different voice parts taking the lead. In a coda section there’s a 4/4 gospel, layered repeated riff that could draw in the congregation. It’s syncopated and may take a little time to figure out, but once you get the feel, it’s worth it – really rousing.
Classical, jazz, world folk music influenced instrumentals by cello, oboe, guitar and ethnic percussion featuring Jim and former Winter Consort friends who originally recorded as the group Radiance. Selected from the albums A Song for the Earth and Inverness, these sparkling compositions by Jim and improvisations by the acoustic ensemble are great for relaxation, reflection, free dance and life in general.
