Roots & Wings

“Two of the greatest gifts we can give our children are Roots & Wings.” That statement of unknown origin inspired Conductor Linda L. Tedford to create the programming for “Roots & Wings,” the Susquehanna Chorale’s popular Spring 2018 concert series and the studio recording of the same title.

“Roots & Wings” celebrates the breadth of human experience and how those relationships rooted in faith, family, and friendship inspire us to achieve our dreams.

Fauré’s beloved Cantique de Jean Racine, American spirituals, and Rhonda Sandberg’s modern arrangement of Bach’s Come, Sweet Death pay tribute to the historical roots of faith.

The enduring roots of human relationships are captured in the modern lullaby Jenny Rebecca, Bob Chilcott’s setting of Christina Rosetti’s poem Remember Me, and Ēriks Ešenvald’s stunning Only in Sleep, based on Sara Teasdale’s poem about childhood friends returning in her dreams.

The roots of our country’s musical heritage are honored with songs from early America, including Nelly Bly and a men’s arrangement of Aura Lee as well as Copland’s Long Time Ago and the delightful I Bought Me a Cat.

This recording was made possible by the generous support of an anonymous donor.
