“For the want of a nail the shoe was lost … the horse was lost … the rider was lost … the battle was lost … the kingdom was lost, and all for the want of a horseshoe nail.” Jean Berger set a clever Benjamin Franklin text in this vigorous and musically satisfying work. Beginning in unison, successive verses display a variety of choral textures that capture the rich sonorities of lower voices.
