Last Sunday afternoon, my a cappella group offered a song/prayer at our afternoon concert to accompany Fenno on his journey to the next world. The Tibetans have a teaching about passage and I think in our Western tradition we find a similar thinking. We offered our song before an audience of some 60 folks and I told them of Fenno's passing. Several people reacted profoundly in recognition.
My guys have not known the pleasure of singing under Fenno's direction, but they sang as never before. We were all joined as one.
