  • September 13, 2018 A rewarding 20th Century gem

    I sang this under Wm. Hall at Chapman, over 30 years ago; and I have remembered it fondly ever since. The piece is not difficult vocally, and the voice leading actually makes sense, as do the 'clusters' the piano part has to play. It sounds (at first sight) to be...

    as atonal as all get-out, but it is actually not that hard to learn- and the sense of accomplishment (along with the immense enjoyment of the text) makes it a very rewarding 'challenge' piece for college choirs. Why? Because!

  • February 26, 2010 LOVE THE SONG

    My choir is the advanced choir (out of three), this song is a challenge! Nothing about it is easy, and you have to work hard for it. Our conductor heard it at ACDA Nationals, and has loved it since. A few of the students said it sounded like the person...

    was on acid when it was composed; not to mention, the person that had written it committed suicide shortly after. This song is astounding yet weird. I recommend it to any choir who is serious, dedicated, and has proper technique.

  • November 09, 2006 WORTH ALL OF THE TIME IN THE WORLD

    This song is absolutely AMAZING!!! Our All-State Choir is performing it this year and it is amazing. The piano, while theoretically weird, is hilarious and the vocals, while dissonant and out of key, are totally worth the time and effort. This song is not a good idea for weaker...

    ensembles, but if you can pull this one off.... HATS OFF TO YOU! Just have fun with it and "BUZZ!"

  • September 19, 2005 RUN FAR AWAY!!!!!!

    If I could give zero stars, this would be the winner. The absolute worst choral song I've ever heard or sung. The piano part must have been written by a drunk man falling onto a keyboard. The choral parts are even worse than the piano. The "music" if you...

    choose to call it that is going absolutely nowhere and it can't decide what key it wants to be in. Aside from some of the worst sounds ever produced in a concert hall, the lyrics are full of little puns that your audience WILL NOT UNDERSTAND!!! One can only catch the pathetic attempts at humor when reading the score and LORD willing, no one ever will have to read it again. Should you decide to but it anyway, please note that your choir will curse you eternally and that you should be fired on the spot. Not worth the paper it's printed on.
