Two new choral pieces
04/03/16 16:39 Music
I have added 2 new vocal works, viewable under the Choral heading on the Navigation Bar. They are both light hearted and entertaining pieces which use words provided by members of local choirs, the Penzance Orpheus Ladies Choir and the Marazion Apollo Male Choir. Dora Laity has written a short poem of fishy love and longing which I set for SSA with a Piano accompaniment, called A Fishy Tale. The other is a series of Cornish based situations involving the frequently absent Jack, who is finally discovered in an unexpected place. This is Lesley's Song by Paul Hickson, who gave me both the words and a melody to work with. He tells me it is named after his wife who had to endure the piece's birth pangs. I have offered an alternative title, "Where's Jack"?
