Rain MusicVictor C. Johnson - Heritage Music Press
This forward-moving, rhythmically driven music enhances the dramatic, image-laden text of Kentucky-born poet and playwright Joseph S. Cotter, Jr. Shifting mixed meter is very effective in giving this selection a dance-like quality. Close harmonies, especially in the contrasting middle section, and effective unison, two-, three- and four-part writing throughout heighten the musical effect. Optional parts for rain stick and djembe.
