Sleepsong is a rich, Celtic-inspired song for choirs looking to test their abilities with a new and exciting challenge.
Released by Secret Garden in 2005, the song was written by Brendan Graham and Rolf Løvland who also penned the Westlife hit, You Raise Me Up.
This beautiful and peaceful choral version has been arranged by Desmond Earley for six part chorus with Soprano solo. It was first performed by UCD Choral Scholars on April 19 2012.
The piece is perfect for choruses looking to take their singing forward, with specific directions for staggered breathing throughout offering an added challenge for ensembles.
Although designed to be sung A Cappella, the arrangement includes a piano reduction for easy rehearsal.
