'Give Us This Day' (day 21)

storming east
from the 'gate' of 'hell'
to the hallowed hall
of carnegie
68 gifts
to earth
united as one
instrument of Spirit
transforming notes
transcending technique
peeling back history
revealing Mystery
and Magnificence
the presence of heaven
on earth

(inspired by the Hellgate High School Wind Ensemble from Missoula, MT, their director, Leon Slater, and their transcendent performance of 'Give Us This Day' by David Maslanka in Carnegie Hall on 10 March 2015, which was awarded a Gold level achievement at the New York Wind Band Festival)
