Story

Notes from the composer - In Remembrance is in response to the tragic accident that took the lives of Dr. William (Bill) Potts, Becca his daughter, and Anna his youngest daughter on July 4, 2002. Bill was a choral parent and Becca was one of my students during my tenure as Director of Choral Activities at Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, Florida. This piece is written in their memory and dedicated to the surviving members of the immediate family: Jayne, wife and mother; Elisabeth, eldest daughter and sister; Jason, Elisabeth's husband, and Will, only son and brother. This text also suits the events that have recently occurred in our world. I believe In Remembrance carries a message of healing, peace, and hope applicable to many situations and personal circumstances. This piece reflects my sadness, for I know I will never see the smiling faces of Bill, Becca and Anna Potts again on this Earth. However, this piece also reflects my joy, for I know they are at rest and I will one day see them again in Heaven. -- Jeffery Ames

Lyrics

Accompanists were Sabrina Gruber, piano and David Song, violin.
