From the recording Star-e De-ci-sis
We Used to Gather
This is a solemn but uplifting song about the fact we used to not worry about gathering. Then we were not allowed outside of family, then friends and family, then groups of 20 but socially distance at 20'. As a result, many businesses shut down for good. Thankfully, many are coming back. Maybe subconsciously or not I got the phrase from a fantastic series curated by the classical guitarist and cellist Laura Metcalf who play on this piece. They have been back in business for the past year in NYC with GatherNYC.
