If this text, inspired by Martin Luther King's speech about the Montgomery march, doesn't sufficiently summon one's attention, then combining it with this musical setting will quite certainly accomplish that goal. “Truth pressed to the earth . . . Justice trampled down . . . Love nailed to a Cross . . . through these resurrections we have hope.” A piece with much gravitas.
