"Electric fingers reaching, reaching, skipping, darting, fleeting, tapping on the clouds..." The vivid imagery and word painting in this creative original are further sparked by dynamic contrasts, rhythmic interplay between parts, and the agitated, eerie atmosphere of the piano accompaniment. Set in minor mode, this wonderful teaching piece takes such unexpected twists and turns, it really sounds like a musical lightning storm!
This great Cy Coleman song from "Sweet Charity" translates so well for choirs, it continues to be a popular title year after year. Now in this outstanding arrangement by Roger Emerson, it's a concert showstopper! Feel the tingle in your fingers and your feet!
The brief Latin text "Cantate canticum novum" means "Sing a new song." Set at an easy jazz-waltz tempo, this is a marvelous blend of Latin and English text, canonic verses and jazz sonorities. A fresh, creative approach to a work based on a Latin text, it is an excellent choice for concert, contest or festival! Highly recommended!
