Description

Composer's Note:

Mankind Rises is a work for baritone solo and piano trio on a text adapted from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s address delivered to the Democratic Party National Convention on July 2, 1932, when he called for a "New Deal" for the American people to recover from the calamity that was the Great Depression. This message of hope, though, is timeless.

This is what FDR said:

"Out of every crisis, every tribulation, every disaster, mankind rises with some share of greater knowledge, of higher decency, of purer purpose. ... This is no time for fear, for reaction, and for timidity."
