With a lively piano accompaniment, folk music influences, an uplifting hope-filled message, and soaring vocal lines, this piece overflows with excitement and joy from start to finish. Commissioned by Urbandale High School and conducted by Theodore Brimeyer for the 2019 National American Choral Directors Association Conference.


Through love to light! Oh wonderful the way That leads from darkness to the perfect day! From darkness and from sorrow of the night To morning that comes singing o’er the sea. Through love to light! Through light, O God, to thee, Who art the love of love, the eternal light of light! - Richard Watson Gilder
