To the Mothers in Brazil: Salve Regina composed by Lars Jansson. Arranged by Gunnar Eriksson. For Choral, Snare Drum, Tambourine, Maracas, Congas (SATB Divisi). Walton Choral. 12 pages. Walton Music #WW1384. Published by Walton Music (HL.8501635).
Originally an instrumental work, Swedish composer Gunnar Eriksson has created a remarkable experimental version for choir which is both deceptively simple and impressively powerful. Deliberately schematic, the score offers a base for improvisation. Each choir is encouraged to create their own unique representation of the emotional meaning inherent in the music itself. Dynamic and intense, this is best for choirs looking to stretch beyond the limits of standard choral repertoire. Recorded by the Sophia Vocal Ensemble, Bengt Ollén, conductor.
