This bewitching setting tells the story of a young girl walking in an enchanted forest, mesmerized by dreamy, ancient songs sung by a chorus of birds. An atmospheric ostinato played on finger cymbals and claves accompanies the voices, and Quartel sets a strong melodic line against the warm harmonies of the birdsong.
The Songbird series presents new and exciting original material for upper voices. Showcasing the work of today's most innovative names in choral writing, the series includes songs in a variety of scorings, from SA voices with piano to SSAA and percussion. With well-crafted and characterful pieces in a range of distinctive styles, Songbird represents upper-voice choral music at its best.
