Cover Emerald Stream [level: Medium]
Seth Houston | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1046 | duration: 2:00 | price: $2.05
accompaniment: a cappella
The then 17 year old composer was in a canoe fishing with his dad in Colorado when the inspiration for this great piece began. The music draws from the “shape-note” singing tradition featuring a hearty, strong sound, an imitative fuging section, melodic ornaments, open intervals, and doubling at the octave. It is unusual, in that the melody is in the bass part. The text by the composer draws on the hymn-writing style of the great theologians of the shape-note tradition, while it proclaims a more contemporary message of environmental stewardship. It has had an extensive pre-publication life that included performances by Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, the Christmas Revels, Village Harmony, and Northern Harmony.
