"Black is the Color," widely regarded as an American folk song with roots in the English tradition, tells of a mysterious woman described by an obsessing young man. In this arrangement, the simple lyricism of the melody has been paired with a highly chromatic and recurring piano figuration. The result is a haunting and psychological portrayal of a tormented soul who has loved but lost. This arrangement would be suitable for high school, college and community choirs.
