More about Donnalynn Grunewald:
Most of my music is original. Because I have lived in small branches for most of my life, I try to write songs that can be performed by a small group or a choir of inexperienced singers.
Song background:

This piece was written during the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. I wouldn’t call this an “easy” song. There are lots of key changes and some unusual harmonies, but I really think it is worth the effort to learn. Be grateful that I didn’t keep it in its original key. It started out in C major, but went through F mj., Db mj and ended in Gb mj. At least the new arrangement ending in four sharps is a bit more manageable.
