B e a utiful!!!!! song. We played a concert band version of this piece at our area all state concert. My god, its so powerful. The harmonies are amazing!!!!!!! especially the ending. However, one needs patience to listen to this type of stuff.
On another note, try to get a hold of a recording by the a capella group "Take 6." They do a little something with a song called "seven steps to heaven." Sooooo good. The bass singers actually sound like bass guitars. really good stuff.
