Through the Window
Words and music by Ruth Elaine Schram
Alfred Archive Edition
SATB and Unison Children's Voices (or Solo)
Ruth Elaine Schram paints a picture of the Christian family life as it passes from generation to generation. This work begins tenderly with children's voices as they gaze "through the window," seeing their parents at prayer. The adult choir answers as they gaze, also "through the window," seeing their children at play. Voices interweave as each asks God's blessing on the other throughout the coming generations. A moving work for Mother's Day or Christian Family Sunday.
