Giles Swayne: The Tiglet

Books | SATB

Publisher: Chester Music
Composer: Giles Swayne
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Written by Giles Swayne in 1995, based around the poem 'The Tiger' by William Blake. The work is for SATB choir, and SSSATB soloists. A separate line for hands and feet is included on the score, with fingerclicking and foot stomping adding to the percussive feel of the work.

This is the full score, showing all vocal parts, and the body percussion line.

...African influences are also felt in Swayne’s Blake setting The Tiglet, which bristles with foot stamping, finger clicking and sharp vocal projectiles...
Robert Levett, International Record Review, 01 February 2007

The Tiglet (part of Swayne's work The Tiger) features some 'wild syllabic interjections, half sung and half shouted' which have to be heard to be believed!
