Submitter Comments

When I Rise was written in response to the magnificent experience of singing with combined Threshold Choirs in presentation of a Compline Service at Stanford Memorial Chapel in Palo Alto, California. The old world environment and acoustics rang on in my mind and inspired this modest song.

When I rise, may my light shine on, always, shine on.
