• Mostly unison and two parts
• Suitable for a wide range of upper-voice choirs
• Thought-provoking texts, with accompanying notes
This exciting and accessible collection for upper voices (scored for SA choir and piano) features five songs by celebrated choral composer Bob Chilcott. Drawing on five very different texts, Chilcott guides the voices through a number of styles and moods; the songs include the rousing 'All for Love of One', gentle 'The Truth is Great', and thought-provoking 'All things pass'. The central song, 'Circles of Motion', is a fervent and positive setting of Joy Harjo's well-known 'Eagle Poem', and the collection is completed by the funky 'Red Boots On', which uses jazzy rhythms and harmonies to bring Kit Wright's text alive. This is Chilcott at his very best – a welcome addition to the repertoire of any upper-voice choir.
Five Songs for Upper Voices is a must for all upper-voice adult, youth, and children's choirs looking for accessible and attractive new repertoire.
