Health and Safety (2015) Duration 5 minutes
This suite of three songs is available in three versions:
(1) Cambiata 1, Cambiata 2, Baritone, and piano.
(2) SSA and piano
(3) SATB and piano
Commissioned by the Cornwall International Male Voice Choir Choral Festival and first performed in Truro by the Warwickshire County Male Voices (director Garry Jones), and also performed by the National Youth Choir of Scotland and many other choirs, this original suite sets anonymous safety instructions and warning announcements, providing amusing and theatrical highlights. The three contrasting movements are contemporary yet accessible in style, with catchy melodies and jazz-inspired harmonies.
The movements are:
1. Prelude: Caution!
2. Interlude: Safety Notices
3. Finale: Shocks!
The movements can be performed separately.
