Earth Song – A Frank Ticheli cry for peace in his world torn by war, this poignant a cappella setting of an original text is filled with striking dynamic contrasts. https://youtu.be/Aarowtnr-hs

Walking on the Airis a song written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs’ 1978 children’s book The Snowman.
