A Blessed Thanksgiving to One and All

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

BONUS: A pair of a capella versions, courtesy of The Kings Singers and Cantus. And, of course, the beloved Copland. But that Krauss-Ma duet is pretty much perfect.

Happy Thanksgiving!
