Gratitude by Linda J. Chase published on 2023-02-24T14:46:52Z Gratitude is one movement from the new oratorio for ecojustice, by Linda J. Chase, "For Our Common Home". This new cross-genre oratorio for choir, soloists and chamber orchestra was inspired by the encyclical Laudato Si’ issued by Pope Francis in 2015 calling on all of humanity to acknowledge the urgency of the environmental crisis and work toward building a just and sustainable world. Chase interprets the text as a call to action through music.
