Sleep (SATB). By Eric Whitacre (1970-). For Choral (SATB DV A Cappella). Walton Choral. Choral. Sacred. Difficulty: medium. Octavo. 12 pages. Walton Music #WJMS1035. Published by Walton Music (HL.8501462).
From the composer of the much performed Cloudburst, here is a new collaboration between Eric Whitacre and poet Charles Anthony Silvestri, drawing on the mystical moment between awareness and sleep. While the voice range is accessible, Sleep requires a big enough choir to handle the divisi passages. First premiered at the 2001 ACDA National Convention by the Concordia College Choir, Rene Clausen conductor.
