The 2020 quarantine brought about a strong trend of chamber music recorded as individual parts, then engineered into ensemble videos for webstream performances. During this time, saxophonist Paul Nolen asked Garrop if she might have a choral work to transcribe for saxophone choir, for Nolen's Illinois State University students to learn and record individually from home, to produce an ensemble video.  Garrop immediately thought of her setting of the Hebrew song LO YISA GOY, on the text known in English as "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares." The text is always timely, asking that nations learn once again to listen to each other, so we may find global peace to preserve both mankind and our planet.
