Have you ever looked at fresh snow early in the morning of a sunny day?  It becomes a blanket of sparkling crystals that dazzles the eyes.  Rick Bartlett paints that picture very well with beautiful harmonies, voices singing only vocables and the timbre of the celeste.   This is a beautiful work that is sure to please audience and singers.
