Contemporary American composer Greg Gilpin is active as a choir coach and Choral conductor and has hundreds of Choral compositions in his oeuvre. This charming, upbeat song is suited for amateur and youth choirs.
I heard this piece performed by 120 boys between the ages of 10 and 16 and simply had to get a copy. 'Why We Sing' is an incredibly moving song which describes the power of music in a very clear and simple way. Some would call it too 'cheesy' but it is ideal for young choirs and the the words are beautiful and so true, no matter what some might say. Anonymous
