Description

For solo voice and piano. Text by Langston Hughes. in the words of editor John Michael Cooper, this work is an example of the deeply poetic creative nature of the Bonds-Hughes collaborations. By genre, it is a gospel song, with mostly diatonic harmonies, and soulful, beautiful melodies. Hughes' text focuses on the images of prayer, the dove, and light.
