16 Oct Most Beautiful Sky
This gorgeous, one-line song from Jennifer Levenhagen defies easy categorization and is given rich depth with Annie Zylstra’s polyphonic arrangement. Wholehearted Chorus has found this to be evocative and wonderful, and a surprising challenge to sing.

Most beautiful sky
I see how you change each day
and each day remain.
Wholehearted Chorus used this song as a rich and evocative season opener. Great for offering a simple part (humming drone) for beginner singers and non-English speakers. The melody is very short but takes a little time for most to learn how the words fall on the notes, and high harmony is surprisingly challenging to learn as it moves outside the traditional western scale.
