All At Once (Extended)

Composed 1995

This unique work is both personal and universal and can be sung in unison, with 2 parts, or with 4 parts. The text evokes a series of images about the cycles of life – past, present and future.  At the song’s conclusion, time stands still for just a moment as “a choir of children sings.”
