John Muir Suite: Hymn to the Wilderness and A Mountaineer's Prayer

by Dan Thomasma and Terry Yazzolino



These two songs are included on their album Trails Plowed Under, Legends of the West (2003). Dan Thomasma and Terry Yazzolino.


This pair of songs evoke the spirit of the wilderness as seen through the spirit of John Muir. These two songs, are part of the musicians' John Muir Suite. The first song of the John Muir Suite, Hymn to the Wilderness uses direct quotations from John Muir as the lyrics. The refrain is the famous "Climb the mountains...." quotation. The second song of the John Muir Suite, A Mountaineer's Prayer uses different quotes and paraphrases from Muir, evoking the spirit of the wilderness, its silence and mystery.
