Gwyneth Walker


American composer Gwyneth Walker’s music is “beloved for its energy, beauty, reverence and drama” and certainly¬†I thank you God for most this amazing day¬†is no exception. Set to the poem by e.e.cummings, this piece expresses the grandeur and vastness of the universe and the feeling of gratitude we have each morning as we awaken to a new day. The women from PolyPhonics will join Canzona to close the program in singing this piece, and with 51 voices on stage, this is sure to be a stirring end to an afternoon of wonderful music.
