"A Winter Prayer"

At the time Fenno set the poem, "A Winter Prayer," he and I were singing
together in the choir of the United Church-on-the-Green in New Haven. Fenno
dedicated the piece to the choir of United Church, and I believe we gave the
piece its world's premier in the winter of 1957. Carla and I were married
in United Church by Dr. Winston in 1958, and we continued to sing there
until we relocated to Simsbury, CT, in 1960. Thus, "A Winter Prayer" is
special to us. Its author, composer and location have all played
significant roles in our lives.
