Hear the Winter Wind by David Lantz and Susan Bentall Boersma. For Choral (SATB). Choral. Shawnee Press. Secular. 16 pages. Shawnee Press #A2358. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35009118).
With an African-feel, this rhythmic easy-to-learn piece uses cool harmonies in a relaxed tempo. Percussion parts (shaker, congas, woodblock, udu drum) add depth to the rhythmic feel and the descant gives individual or small group opportunities to shine. Swahili words included with English text speak of the howling and wailing wind all around, yet no one can see it. A unique multicultural winter selection.
