Reunion is a tender and heartfelt piece for SATB choir. Based on a simple folk-song, this work is historic because it is one of the first choral pieces written in the Hmong language. With themes of family, gratitude and empathy, this simple and beautiful text, told from the perspective of a child speaking to their parents, is embodied in this rich, pastoral arrangement. Reunion is a perfect fit for high school and collegiate choirs looking to represent language and culture outside the standard choral repertoire.
