Sigh No More, Ladies by Ruth Morris Gray. For SSA choir, piano. Concert. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2758H).
Ruth Morris Gray has created a spirited and artful setting of Shakespeare's flirtatious text from "Much Ado About Nothing." Also a fabulous choice for smaller ensembles, the piece includes a playful polyphonic chorus of "Hey, nonny, nonny-o" and an accompaniment featuring a driving rhythmic ostinato that underscores the ladies' cry "Men were deceivers ever. To one thing constant never. Sigh no more, ladies.".
