Gene brought us music big, magnificent glorious heart-filled music Gene was a big tall beautiful man Big smile, kind strong hug As a conductor, bringing out the contours, the rhythms, the subtleties the complexities, the power and unbounded joy of Handel and Brahms, Bach and Beethoven As a singer, his fine strong deep rich bass voice brought us wisdom and peace and harmony and love most of all love The chours was unauditioned everyone can sing! The orchestra was unauditioned everyone can play! and we sang and played unto the high mountains until the air rang with the sound of Dana’s trumpet, and the bass vibrations of Gene’s voice And we loved you, how we loved you, Gene!
