The Angels will Sing More Sweetly

Those who touch us most deeply have become part of us every day. Fenno shared his great gift of song and it lives on in me and in countless others. Can there be any finer remembrance and tribute? Years ago my wife commissioned a collage for my birthday, taking my favorite photos of our daughter, and I gave her also words from poems set to music by Fenno, which I often sing. The collage hangs in my living room, and his spirit is with me. I will always remember with great fondness the European Tour of 1970, the first with both men and women, and his great joy of song and of life. The high point for me was the concert in the Cathedral in Salamanca, and I will bet the music brought forth from his fingers that evening will forever echo in heaven.

Charly Gates,

Class of 1970, and Co-European Tour Manager.
