Inspiration of the Day: 'Entreat Me Not to Leave You' by Dan Forrest

We draw inspiration from many things but music for me is at the very top of the list. Today I listened to two amazing works by contemporary composer Dan Forrest. They are super inspiring and will definitely move your heart and spirit. My Dad who sings in the Knoxville (TN) Choral Society actually introduced me to Forrest's music a few years ago. His choir has performed a number pieces by the composer.

"Entreat Me Not to Leave You" by Dan Forrest / Performed by University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire Concert Choir

"Good Night, Dear Heart" by Dan Forrest  / Performed by The Bel Canto Company Choir (Piano played by Dan Forrest)
