Mark Hayes' arrangement of the folk song The Water Is Wide for SATB Choir.
This new arrangement is destined to become a classic and a favorite of choral groups of any age. It's fresh, inventive, yet rich in choral tradition - hallmarks of Mark Hayes' writing. The first verse is strong unison writing, the second features an echo section, the third is voiced with lush, fluid harmonies and the fourth scores the female voices in counterpoint with the men. The arrangement fades away, 'like the morning dew'.
A SoundPax and SoundTrax CD is available to accompany this vocal score.
