Shenandoah/He's Gone Away
arr. Mark Hayes
- Alfred Music Publishing
Mark Hayes' reflective, poignant essay on the sting of separation, based on two simple folk songs, is very expressive, with warm harmonies, emotive vocal lines, and simple scoring for woodwinds and percussion - and yet we are gripped with Mark's ability to bring these elements together with artistry and grace. Refined, timely and musically stunning, this is a compelling choral feature in every way - from the ethereal opening measures, through the "rolling river" rendered on the piano, to the breathtaking final measures.
