A tour-de-force for SSAA chorus, unaccompanied. For today’s singers and audiences, the text is as tongue-in-cheek as they come. Yet it was written in a leaflet issued by the National Women’s Christian Temperance Union and was intended to be quite, quite serious! Apples and grapes are God’s bottles! “Some men take the juice of apples and grapes and make drinks that will harm our bodies!” But “We will drink from GOD’S BOTTLES.” A fun exercise in precise ensemble techniques with changing tempi, articulations, and dynamics.
