An uplifting work, this setting wonderfully captures the inspirational Margaret Fuller text, “I rise on, upward forever, gathering strength, gaining breath, from the spirit of life.” A simple melody gradually unfolds over a gentle piano accompaniment, growing into a full, 4-part texture. Written with emerging ensembles in mind, the vocal ranges are very manageable, and the melodies are singable. Whether chosen for its text or beautiful melodies, this piece is a great choice for any choir looking for an uplifting message, a testament to the beauty of life.
