Sing, My ChildSarah Quartel - Oxford University Press
This joyful text celebrates the beauty found all around us in everyday life. Characterized by tight harmonies and a dynamic percussion line, the buoyant 7/8 meter of the opening drives the piece forward. Lush harmonies color the hymn-like B section as the text evolves into a call for strength despite the troubles that may come. Commissioned for a massed choir of over 700 singers, this piece is well suited for combined choir projects or as a rousing and meaningful concert closer.
