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.

A spiritual album that appeals to non-“religious” listeners. The singer-songwriter-guitarist’s songs get the full choral treatment with creative arrangements. A poignant philosophy of ecology, peace and healing emerge from thoughtful lyrics. Some of Jim’s most loved hymns, anthems and songs of a more meditative quality are recorded here with Matt Johnsen and the MSTG Choir. Jim calls this collection his “spiritual philosophy in song,” with six of his songs that are included in the UU Hymnbooks. They range from a capella to gospel and contemporary styles. Jim sings a solo part of most of the songs and accompanies on guitar with piano, bass and drums rhythm section on some. The “Master Singers to Go” (MSTG) is a 16 member ensemble of singers who are part of the larger Master Singers of Worcester MA.
All the choir arrangements on the CD are available, some both as SATB with solo and for SATB choir alone.
