Product details

An Essayist's Prayer is a setting of a text about something fairly low-key: writing an English essay for school. Between the music and the text's tone, however, this task is made monumental, revelatory, high drama. This tongue-in-cheek take on student life should appeal to teenagers and teachers alike.
