Blooming Vale and Anonymous 4

A lovely shape-note tune drawn from the Psalms and sung with great tenderness by Anonymous 4. The visuals are entertaining bits of New England history and locations. This is a fuging tune, meaning that its chorus features imitative entries.

This ensemble in its various combinations of singers over the years showed all of us that you could do great things with treble voices. The only requirement was four fantastic singers, good scholarship, and a heart for all types and periods of music.
