A text from the Baha i Scriptures. Composed by Stanford E. Scriven. Concert, General. Octavo. Santa Barbara Music Publishing #SBMP916. Published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing (SB.SBMP-916).

Item Number: SB.SBMP-916

This Is the Day is an impassioned piece set to a text by Baha'u'llah, founder of the Baha'i faith. The text is exemplary of this faith, which seeks to unite the world in peace and understanding, and the title suggests that the time to do this is upon us. This selection is being published with the blessing of the leaders of this faith, and it is an excellent piece for the mature, large choir.

    This piece is absolutely gorgeous. The text is beautiful, it’s taken from the Sacred Writings of the Baha’I Faith and it’s about how important it is for us, in this day, to reconcile our differences and to focus on the spiritual laws. The harmonies are beautiful and...

    flowing. There is quite a bit of divisi so you will need a good sized choir for it to sound really beautiful. And you’ll need some extra good sopranos to pull of the sustained high B flat. There are key signature changes, time signature changes (including 3/2 and 9/8) and some tricky rhythms. The sopranos have some long sustained pianissimo notes on E5 (top of the staff), which can be difficult for many as that can be right in their passaggio. So, all in all, not suite for beginners, but your more advanced singers will love it!
