Puget Sound Youth Ensemble; Dan Davison, conductor
This dramatic work uses the sound and methods of the late Baroque period as introduction to the classics. Tenor and bass parts have limited ranges that will work well with any age, including those with a changing voice. Great teaching and per-formance piece!
The Chowan University Women's Chorus; Dr. Gregory Parker, conductor This song tells the sorrowful legend of the Cherokee Rose, that grows wherever a Native American mother's tears have fallen. Multiple voicing option allows you to choose what suits your choir, from middle school and beyond. Substitution between voice parts and instruments gives you further options.

Kantorei, Richard Larson, conductor
An excellent work for beginning high school choir, with flowing lines, contained ranges and straightforward accompani-ment. Engaging romantic poetry by Percy Bysshe Shelley will appeal to maturing young singers. The optional C instrument enhances the lyrical texture of a wonderful concert piece.
