This is the Key

This is the Key
unison voices, with optional second part, and piano
Commissioned by The Childrens’ Choir of Greater Dallas, Texas, This is the key is a dramatic, narrative piece, perfect for children’s and youth choirs. It can be sung in unison throughout, or the score contains options for two parts, sometimes singing alternating phrases and at other times singing together in two-part harmony. Sections in different tempos and keys create a variety of moods, and the continuous piano part features running quavers, a rhythmic bass line, and shimmering spread chords.
