Humanist Hymnal Project

Maira Benjamin This is a collaboration with California resident Maira Benjamin.

Our mission is to create a body of original choral songs that are practical for well-rehearsed amateur as well as professional mixed choirs, that reflect the highest Enlightenment ideals, and that are appropriate for common life events.

Note: Religion is not mentioned at all in these works.
