Happy Thanksgiving! It’s been a year of many changes, some struggles, and many blessings. As I set out to share an appropriate feast with my family, I wanted to thank my readers for a year of camaraderie, friendship, great music and great music. Warm wishes of health and happiness to you all!
To celebrate, let me share a particularly appropriate piece of music, Antonín Dvořák’s Te Deum—a short choral work based on the traditional Latin hymn of praise and thanksgiving. The work was premiered on 21st October 1892 at the New York Hall, with a choir of 250 singers conducted by Dvořák himself. Enjoy!
