for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied Displaying Chydenius's unique style, I am the great sun is a driven and focused setting of Charles Causley's poem. This is textured choral writing: you'll find imitative passages, melodic and rhythmic motifs, sections requiring precise articulation, and full homophonic climaxes. An exciting challenge for established choirs!show more

About Jussi Chydenius
