The Gift to Sing

Composer: Geter, Damien
Code: 9780193566330

The Gift to Sing is an unaccompanied part-song with a text by writer and activist James Weldon Johnson. Geter paints the text ‘I pierce the darkness with a note’ with sustained pitches, and the piece’s prevailing triple metre gives momentum to the lilting melodies that weave through the voices.
