The Piper for Mixed Chorus & Piano (SATB). Secular Chorals. Songs of Innonence Choral Suite. Vocal score. Published by Aspen Grove Music (AG.2001).
Songs of Innocence is our first, and best selling choral suite. Published in 1987, it has been acclaimed wherever it has been performed. The music is rhythmic and fun, and strikingly sets the classic texts by William Blake. This is a piece you would be proud to perform anytime. Published as separate octavos, the five movements of Songs of Innocence are listed immediately below. "Piping down the valleys wild, piping songs of pleasant glee," The Piper is a vibrant work. In 6/8 time with an occasional 3/4 thrown in for a hemiola effect, it is rhythmic and dynamic. A fitting introduction to Songs of Innocence.
