About the work:

Cycle of Grace was composed at the request of Juduth Clurman, who wanted a new choral work for the Thanksgiving season. The result is a call-and-response hymn which can be sung alternating betweeen chorus and soloist, or chorus and an audience of amateur singers. The text gixes thanks for the miracle of life through the lens of th natural changes of the seasons.
