Chant de benediction (“Song of Blessing”) was commissioned by guitarist John A. Savage, Jr to benefit The Loving Hands Orphanage in Turbe, Haiti. A benediction (prayer of blessing) that is sung by the children there before meals and the Haitian meringue rhythm provide the inspiration and foundation of the piece. Composed by Heather Niemi Savage.
All proceeds from the purchase of this recording go to The Loving Hands Orphanage in Turbe, Haiti.
