Hurd: Swingin' Samson

Books | Unison Voice, Piano

Publisher: Novello
Composer: Michael Hurd
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Michael Hurd. An enormously fun pop cantata for narrator, unison voices (with divisions) and easy piano with guitar chord symbols. The work is divided into six sections opening with a lively description of Samson himself. It explains his enormous strength and outlines his prowess on the field of battle. Highlights of the cantata include the scene in a barber’s shop, with a background of snipping scissors. This is followed by a splendid music-hall song in which the whole audience can join! The finale describes the Philistine’s party - set as a square dance - at the end of which Samson pulls down the whole building! 10 mins.

        This cantata is so easy to learn and so much fun to perform, it doesn't matter if you don't have a choir - a piano player who can join in for the parts with two voices is all you need. I highly recommend to let the audience sing along in song 5. We had much fun practicing and performing and the audience just loved it :) .....and that after only two weeks practicing :)
