For SATB and percussion instruments (4 sand blocks (optional), 2 rainsticks, 2 claves, 1 shaker, and a low-pitched tomtom played with hard sticks) OR SATB and low-pitched tomtom played with hard sticks, and marimba. This unusual and highly effective choral cantata in five sections uses poems which are a celebration of how the living spirit of the drum is brought alive. This is an exuberant and rhythmic work, and hugely exciting. All percussion is played by members of the chorus. The unpitched percussion parts are printed in the vocal score. Vocal scores and the marimba part are available on sale or hire/rental from the publisher.
