The Nightingale Call
This piece started life as a three part canon for equal voices and has now been transformed into an SSA art song for choir and piano. Over the centuries, the nightingale’s alluring call has been the subject of poems, songs and folk tales. In this treatment, the singers become nightingales singing a repeated birdcall under an Impressionistic piano accompaniment. With so much scope for expression and possibilities for adding a nightingale whistle, this piece is sure to enchant your singers and audiences.
