for SATB and optional percussion An uplifting and joyful concert setting of four texts exploring man's relationship with the earth. Brimming with energy, the work has a wonderful freshness and vitality. Chilcott selects a range of evocative texts from ancient Chinese, Aztec, Eskimo, and Native American cultures. Chilcott's skill for capturing the essence and meaning of words in music shines throughout the work. The percussion parts are included in the vocal score.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
The part-writing is largely melodic and intuitive, and should be picked up relatively easily by less strong readers. Another factor to recommend these settings is their thoroughly inclusive and topical subject matter, which should result in a broad appeal to many ensembles. * Tom Wiggall, Music Teacher July 07 * The suite of four SATB songs, I Share Creation, deals with very interesting texts - Aztec, Eskimo, Chinese, Amerindian - all to do with caring for the poor old earth. Chilcott is a man on several missions, and not all of them musical. Easy to listen to, they are equally demanding and rewarding to sing. * Peter Dale, Choir & Organ, May 07 *
