Pilgrim Song (BOK)
Nytt opplag ventes
for SATB (with divisions) and piano or orchestra Pilgrim Song is a powerful and heartfelt arrangement of a traditional American tune and lyrics. The text speaks of the glory of heaven and the risen life, and welcomes the day of judgement; these words are set strophically to a simple, broadly lilting melody, before the voices open into a grander choral texture with imitative motifs and a dramatic modulation. The piano part (also included in the orchestral version) adds further colour and texture with continuously flowing passages, syncopated countermelodies, and the use of different registers. An accompaniment for orchestra is available on hire/rental.
