Festival Piece for Three
No one is optional here, it takes all three choirs to ring this one, making it best suited for a festival or workshop situation. Unless, of course, you have these three choirs in your church and can borrow a couple of sets from other churches! The texture throughout is full chords with one choir making a statement and then being answered by the other two, each in its' turn. Then all three play a passage together. Some chromatic harmonies do occur, but plenty time is given to ready for them. If the resources are there for this work it should prove to be exciting!
