Description

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This atmospheric piece sets a haunting secular text by Doris Kareva. In style it is contemplative with a clear, expansive melody, and Jackson skilfully conjures up a sense of the undulations of a ship at sea through the lilting lines of the accompanying voices. This piece is an ideal choice for choirs looking for something unique and memorable for their next concert.show more
