Grumble Too Much by Ruth Elaine Schram. For SATB choir, piano (with optional small percussion). Concert, Multicultural, Novelty. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2112H).
Based on the premise that women 'grumble too much', this dynamite creative programming selection (as you can imagine! ) features lots of fun, back-and-forth dialogue and interplay between the men and ladies in the SATB edition, and the higher and lower voices in the TTB edition. Several small percussion patterns are included and may be employed throughout, and portions of the accompaniment are designed to sound like steel drums, lending an authentic island feel.
