Sarah Quartel: Snow Angel

Books | SATB, Cello, Percussion, Piano Accompaniment

Composer: Sarah Quartel
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Sarah Quartel's Snow Angel for SATB, solo Cello, Djembe and Piano.

Already a firm favourite with choirs across the world, Snow Angel is an evocative five-movement choral work that explores themes of love, rebirth, and beauty through the eyes of children and the heavenly army of angels that watch over them, yearning to make a difference to their lives. The work may be performed with narration, in which three angels present their perspectives on their earthly charges.

Sarah Quartel weaves a haunting and poignant Cello line throughout the work, and a vibrant part for Djembe in movement four, 'Sweet child', carries the listener from the ethereal and mystical realm the work predominantly inhabits into an emphatic anthem with a distinctly African feel. The musical language is emotive and pictorial, allowing performers to play an active role in the storytelling.
Snow Angel is also available in a version for SSAA.

        This is a strange piece. The use of slightly varied repetition over an unchanging harmonic pattern creates an almost mesmeric quality but there is just enough change to sustain interest.
        The vocal writing is unnecessarily awkward (at least in the SATB version) - even our very good choir struggled a bit. Also the words are seriously odd.
