Rocking delightfully between 3/4 and 6/8, Doug McConnell’s setting of the ancient words of Kalidasa (ca. 400 B.C.E.) sound fresh and meaningful. The message of seizing and living the possibilities of a new day are uplifting and joyful. A winner of the Roger Wagner Choral Competition, this piece is a marvelous high school concert or festival number.
