EMBRACE THE GRACE - a Christmas carol



Waddy Thompson's works have been performed at the Spoleto Festival U.S.A., St. Louis Spring Festival, Chicago Festival of New Music, Florida New Music Festival, Brevard Music FestivalSymphony Space, and at other venues. Described as "atmospheric" (Winter Morning by a Lake/string quartet version) and "engagingly antic" (Aria and Parody) by The New York Times, his works speak with a harmonic language all their own, very occasionally drifting into tonality, while always relishing melody.
