  • May 21, 2008 Challenging but well worth it.

    My choir almost laughed at me the first rehearsal or so of this wonderfully beautiful piece. It is in 6 sharps, which will only prove difficult to the accompanist, but the occasional F double-sharp might confuse a volunteer choir. The musical language is markedly dissonant at times, but the...

    harmonic movement is beautiful once you get the hang of it. My choir will be singing this this Sunday, after 7 weeks or so of practice. They've finally gotten the hang of it and now they love it!! I strongly recommend this piece if you want to expand the horizons of your choir's repertoire, especially if they like 20th century works.
