    This piece was very well done. It is a very emotional song. I converted the flute part to clarinet so as I could play with my HS chorus class. Sadly I never got to perform with the chorus except in the practice room, due to illness, but it's a...

    beautiful piece. I intend to use my conversion for one of my audition pieces this year.

    "'Cross the Wide Missouri" is a true favourite especially for the altos. The harmonies are luscious and a joy to sing and perform. Fantastic service from Sheetmusic Plus

  • January 02, 2005 It Gave Me Goosebumps

    I sang it in my 7th grade Smitha Middle School for Festival and recieved straight 1's! It was my last perfomance with my chorus teacher,MaryEm Byce, and it was fantastic. The lively harmony of the sopranoes were like fairies in the distance. While the altoes sent chills up...

    my spine with the lovely harmony. It is a lovely song that needs great singers,like us, to sing it with musicality. Without musicality, you cannot hear and feel the beauty of the song. It is a wonderful song to enjoy and I highly reccommend it.
