I Thank You God For Most This Amazing Day – SATB
Singers and audiences will enjoy this new exquisite setting of E. E. Cummings’ traditional poem, “i thank God for this most amazing day,” by Christopher Aspaas in the new Andre J. Thomas Choral Series. The composer, through the inspiration of the text, highlights the celebration of the beauty and wonder of the natural world, as well as a reflection on the importance of gratitude. The text begins with the speaker thanking God for the “most amazing day,” which is filled with the sights, sounds, and sensations of nature. The speaker describes the “sun on the hill” and the “wind in the trees,” as well as the “warm, white sand” and the “cool, green sea.” These natural elements are depicted in vivid, sensual detail, inviting the listeners to experience them alongside the performers. Masterfully done. A great selection for graduations, weddings, festivals, and school concerts year-round.
