CoverGloria [level: Medium]
Debra Lynn | Terry J. Barham Choral Series

voicing: SAB | catalog number: SBMP 480 | duration: 2:00 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: piano, opt. handbells

GLORIA was composed for choirs with substantially fewer male than female members. The piece presents opportunities for choirs to gain a sense of accomplishment and understanding: Themes are anticipated in the accompaniment making pitches easier to find and changes in patterns easier to remember. Short a cappella sections help give singers a sense of accomplishment and offer an effective chance in texture for listeners. The use of polyphony makes all parts important; unison singing adds to the strength of the piece.
