A Distant Shore
(The Water Is Wide)
Mary Donnelly & George Strid
- Alfred Music Publishing
This partner-song setting of the best-loved American folk song The Water Is Wide
features a new, folk-like countermelody. Moderate vocal ranges, an extended "echo" section, flowing piano lines, strong countermelody and skillful imitative treatment of the melody combine to make this more than just a partner song arrangement. It is a rich musical tapestry which will give your choir a very rewarding learning experience!
