“An American Thanksgiving was commissioned by the Dale Warland Singers for their final season and premiered on November 1, 2003.  The concert had a Thanksgiving theme, so I chose three hymns from the original Sacred Harp collection based on their compatible texts and compelling melodies.”

Carol Barnett, composer

This piece is the second of three pieces which are published separately.  The other two are: S-204a Webster and S-204c Ninety-Third Psalm.  The text was written by an English minister named Samuel Stennett (1727-1797).  The piece is recorded on CD-06.
