For SSA unaccompanied Songbird sets an evocative text describing songbirds that spin tunes of gold. The catchy, colourful melody is first presented by tutti voices, and is then woven through the vocal parts, often to scat accompaniment. The setting ends with an effective passage of close imitation.
Songbird presents new and exciting original material for upper voices. Showcasing the work of today's most innovative names in choral writing, the series includes songs in a variety of scorings, from SA voices with piano to SSAA and percussion. With a range of distinctive musical styles - and warmth, flair, and character in abundance - this is upper-voice choral music at its very best.
