This stunning lyrical composition is truly something special. A tribute to Jennifer, Hayley, and Michaela Petit, victims of a 2007 home invasion in Cheshire, CT, Hymn to the Beauty That Was is a moving ballad which adds harp (or synthesizer) to the band, and features soloists on flute, English horn (or alto sax), and euphonium. The piece builds to a powerful and emotional climax as the three main musical elements (the women's theme, the hymn melody, and an accompanying triplet figure) are woven together.
