Bronwyn Edwards - SirenSong Productions
Publisher Desc. Commissioned to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Vashon Island Chorale (Vashon Island, Washington state), Vashon Suite: No Bridges features eleven songs for SATB choir about the history, geography and romance of Vashon Island (across Puget Sound from Seattle). The seventh song in the suite, Seashore describes the forty-five miles of shore around the island -- the seashore teems with abundant life from the many species of sea-birds to surfacing whales and blubbery seals. The piece features a flute obligato, and an optional conga drum, as well as a piano accompaniment. Seashore has the flavor of summer. Other pieces in the suite include Strawberry Kisses, (a tandem bicycle and picnic song of summer) and Leonosa, a rollicking sea-shanty depicting a brig carrying lumber from Vashon Island to San Francisco during the Gold Rush.
