I Think about the Star

$18.00

I THINK ABOUT THE STAR was commissioned by Arkansas Symphony English hornist Beth Wheeler, Mary Ann Robinson, and David Glaze for a December premiere. Its text is based on a poem by Lois Duncan called “The First Christmas Without Her.” This poem captures the emotions of the poet on the first Christmas after the mysterious murder of her daughter, Kaitlyn Arquette, six months earlier. The words bring hope and comfort to all who have grieved a tragic loss, especially around Christmas when all else is joyful. The poem can be found in Lois Duncan’s book Seasons of the Heart.

Wow, Judith, this piece is outstanding. I think my heart skipped a beat reading it. I would be SO honored to sing this. My God. I love this song…. Alysha Hinton Nesbitt, soprano
