Background Notes
In many SATB groups the SA voices outnumber the TB voices, sometimes drastically y especially when several SATB groups combine in a massed choir. Sarah, like its companion piece Heave Away, also published by Alliance Music Publications, was written for situations where the upper voices are in abundance. The SA voices extend themselves through simple but rich divisi, while the men have a part with lots of spotlight that still works when the TB voices are in the minority.

Sarah is much beloved in Newfoundland and a staple at song-swapping sessions: in fact, I first heard the song at four in the morning at just such a session in a room standing high above the St. John's harbour. There's a special feeling for songs you meet after midnight.
