Eja, Eja (We Will Sing For Joy). By Mary Lynn Lightfoot. For 2-part choir (3-part Mixed (with Opt. Sign Language)). Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-1598H).
Captivating syncopations and rhythmic vitality spark this dynamic work about celebrating the power and joys of music ('Eja' is Latin for 'joy'). And if we'll just listen, we'll hear 'music' everywhere inspiring, enriching, and bringing joy to our lives. This exuberant piece in a minor mode is a terrific opener or closer for general, holiday, or Music In Our Schools Month concerts/festivals. Also available: SSA (15/1597H) and Three-part Mixed/SAB (15/1599H).
