This eclectic collection contains six diverse gems for female singers. "Freedom Come"is in the style of a South African freedom song: creating an atmosphere in which hope can increase, healing can occur, and connections to our common humanity can be strengthened. "Waly, Waly" is a masterful setting of a well-loved, Scottish ballad that is rich in harmonic texture. "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" is a beautiful arrangement of an American folk hymn written for the Brigham Young University Women's Chorus. "Melodijas" is a Latvian text by J. Sudrabkalns wherein musical concepts become metaphors for the complexities of life. Peteris Barisons's arrangement enhances the meaning of the text while simultaneously evoking rich, warm tone and expressive delivery. "Sulle Mulle" features Barbershop-style singing, composed by Alo Ritsing, esteemed teacher, composer and conductor at the Heino Eller Music School in Estonia. Finally, "Wana Baraka" is a popular, religious Kenyan song, arranged by Shawn Kirchner to express the quality of joy and improvisation that comes with spontaneous music-making.
