Music for the Earth Monday, April 22, 2013
Caring for our planet is becoming more and more important to our society and our world. According to EarthDay.gov, “Earth Day is a time to celebrate gains we have made and create new visions to accelerate environmental progress; Earth Day is a time to unite around new actions; Earth Day and every day is a time to act to protect our planet.” These choral pieces are an ideal way to celebrate our planet and encourage environmental action:
I Will Tread Lightly by Alisa Bair is a lilting and winsome choral that beautifully expresses the ever-growing desire to preserve and protect our cherished planet. Features a jubilantly optimistic message of environmental stewardship.
All Things Bright and Beautiful by John Rutter is a long-standing classic in choral literature. It’s sweet, simple melody lingers with you, and the text celebrates all the wonders our world has to offer.
Another John Rutter favorite appropriate for Earth Day is For the Beauty of the Earth, a gentle and joyful setting of the beloved text.
