Throwback Thursday: “The Promise of Living,” Aaron Copland

Standard

 

I have this sense that we all could use a collective reminder that life goes on.  This short little number by Aaron Copland should help.  Nothing is more of a soothing balm as a Copland harmony.  This piece is from his opera, “The Tender Land,” and features the hymn, “Zion’s Walls,” which Copland arranged.

    Mmmm. I just love Copland, and this piece was exactly what I needed today. Also, some of those rides in the first video look highly dangerous and/or unstable … and highly entertaining! I would really like to have them reinstated at state fairs and carnivals everywhere.
