Simple truths and sweet melodies. Looks like you and John Williams had the same idea, or perhaps you were inspired by Williams' "Air and Simple Gifts" from the Obama inauguration and wanted to do your own round of variations on this beautiful Shaker hymn. The percussions add a wonderful texture here too. Musical wisdom for a new age of leadership and hope.

Let Freedom reign and Peace be,
~Justin smiley

I thought the the same thing as Justin--that was a virtuoso performance. Very enjoyable, George. Nice orchestration, very much a 'classical' sound. It somewhat reminds me of Copland, but this version has more of a naive feel. The triangle is clipping on my system. Nice work!
