Lyrics:

Joseph Mohr (1792-1848)

Tu che i Vati da lungi sognar,
Tu che angeliche voci nunziar,
Luce dona alle gente,

Pace infondo nei cuor!

Astro del Ciel,
Pargol divin,
Mite Agnello Redentor!

Tu di stirpe regale decor
Tu virgineo, mistico fior,
Luce dona alle gente!

Pace infondo nei cuor!

Astro del Ciel,
Pargol divin,
Mite Agnello Redentor!

Luce dona alle gente!
Pace infondo nei cuor!

Astro del Ciel,
Pargol divin,
Mite Agnello Redentor.

Astro del Ciel,

Pargol divin,

Mite Agnello Redentor!

Astro del Ciel,

Astro del Ciel,

Astro del Ciel!

"The Dream Keepers: A Couple"
A Love Story told through Jazz

But not just any love story….the true love story of two of our founders. We performed the world premiere of a piece we commissioned by composer and performer, Adam Maness, for women’s chorus and jazz trio to celebrate our dream keepers: Richard and Mary Ann Shaw.
