Uji River (Anonymous Japanese Poem). Choir Secular. 2-Part Choir. Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Multicultural; Secular. Choral Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.28666).
The most unique multicultural piece you will sing this year. A primarily English text tells the spectacular story of an ancient Japanese fishing tradition on the Uji River. And a traditional Asian folk melody floats above a gentle koto-like piano or SoundTrax accompaniment. Magical for treble voices, and highly effective when TB singers sound like fishermen.
Recorded Acc. Available.
