Notes from the Composer:
Ten years ago we created the Virtual Choir with a simple question: is it possible to make beautiful music together, no matter how far apart we are? After multiple virtual choir projects featuring over 20,000 singers from 124 different countries, the answer is a resounding yes.
For Virtual Choir 6, we continued with a new piece I wrote especially for the Virtual Choir during the pandemic, “Sing Gently”.
It’s amazing to think that the Virtual Choir started as a simple experiment some ten years ago. We have all known its special purpose over that decade – joining people from around the world through music – and it has brought us particular comfort this year.
All of which is the reason I am so excited to release this beautiful arrangement by Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant. My hope is that it will allow instrumentalists at all levels a chance to play it during these strange and difficult times.
