Various Arrangers : Native American Songs

"Eagle Hill" - Young voices will soar like the eagle in this accessible work for treble choir. The text was shaped from a ritual song of the Pawnee nation which revered the eagle for its strength and wisdom. Students from the commissioning choir wrote poetry, which the composer incorporated into this setting. "Songs of the Earth" - This choral pairs two venerable Native American songs: a Hopi chant and a traditional Arapaho Native song. With recorders and percussion, the songs are blended together to form a partner song at the conclusion of the piece. A striking addition to your concert! "Canoe Song" - A favorite North American tune is creatively arranged incorporating unison and 2-part harmony, round and partner-style singing with original music. A treasure chest of teaching and learning that includes optional percussion instruments and a text that reflects the Native American philosophy of reverence for the earth. "Shoshone Love Song" - This tender setting of a Native American poem features extended legato phrasing and delicate musicality. The simple piano accompaniment supports the expressive vocal textures. "Grandfather, Great Spirit" - With a text based on a Sioux Nations prayer, the composer has this to say, For native peoples, the spirits of nature and the earth are a strong presence, as are the spirits of their ancestors and the living traditions of their culture. Approach this song with honesty, sincerity, reverence and with awe.
