Yesterday morning I was thinking what special piece I could recommend to you on this occasion and quite unexpectedly I found myself pondering upon the idea of creating a composition based on the famous Thanksgiving hymn - Now Thank We All Our God.

This is my way of saying thanks to you, my loyal readers.
