Sung by Chor Leoni
The 44th Annual Christmas Caroling at the Washington Square Arch. December 21,2017. Barbara Morillo (to my right from the watcher's perspective) and I have kept this tradition going for 44 years. It began as a flash mob style caroling group, "The Carolling Carollers" but has grown to include Anyone who wants to come and sing together.
Chor Leoni director Erick Lichte commissioned me to write a Christmas song. Here is the premier performance of the song "The Breath of Winter".
Not everyone stops drinking
From two far apart places on the globe, we traveled together for a spell.
A bank teller looking at my check called me Earth Rock. He said that was my name in French. I wrote this song the day after a journalist was beheaded. It was raining very hard and seemed like the earth was crying.
Everything wanes. The guitar part on this one is fun to play!
Garry Dial and I put out a record of 16 different national anthems incorporating musicians from the various countries all of whom were currently living in New York City. Here Namgyal Yeshi sings a nomad song he remembered from his childhood while my sister Maggie and I sing the the Tibetan anthem.
Captain Sully landed a plane in the Hudson River in the deep cold of winter. Everyone survived. Sidiki Conde, Marlon Cherry and I wrote this song of thanks to all the people and spirits who participated in this Miracle on the Hudson.
