Iain Grandage: Three Australian Bush Songs

Song NameVoicing
DawnSATB
BirdsSATB
SunsetSATB

These songs use a musical language which is contemporary yet easily approachable by mixed voices choirs including those at the high school level. Its central "birdsong chorus" includes mixed meters, onomatopoeia, and improvised bird calls. The two outer movements surround this energetic paen with slow evocative harmonies describing respectively sunrise and sunset. The three titles are Dawn, Birds and Sunset. The parts sometimes divide. The musical language is "easy modern" and when sung together these form an effective set. Presented in workshop by Andre Thomas at the Sixth World Symposium on Choral Music in Minneapolis.
