Celebrating or even acknowledging All Saints and All Souls Day has never been on my to-do list. That's primarily because I wasn't fully aware of these long-standing holidays until I began preparing this show.
I certainly have respect and admiration for my foreparents and many believers and non-believers who are no longer with us. This year I'll pause and acknowledge some of those folks, including some of my favorite musicians and composers whose music we continue to enjoy. Let's say your toast, prayer, or good works would actually advance the cause of eternal rest and happiness for the departed.
Which composer or artist would you say most needs intercession and why? And please have fun with this!
