Steven Sametz : The Heroine Triumphant : SATBB : 01 Songbook : Steven Sametz : 9780193861848

Steven Sametz : The Heroine Triumphant

A medley of songs (opening with a barbershop quartet) from the 1890's with soprano and mezzo-soprano soloists. The Heroine Triumphant links four songs which together trace the story of a young girl who comes to town in search of her brother ("Mother Was a Lady"); she is cruelly deceived by a drummer, an unscrupulous low-life, claiming to know her brother. He proposes marriage, but in "Take Back Your Gold" we find his intentions are less than honorable. The heroine finds herself alone and cast out in "She Is More To Be Pitied Than Censured." Finally, she rises above her misery and woe to find a new life in "Ta-ra-ra-Boom-de-ay!" The opening barbershop quartet may be sung by a small ensemble, but the character voices of the narrator and the drummer should be assigned to soloists. The Heroine Triumphant easily lends itself to some simple staging. Fun!

Songlist: Mother Was A Lady, Take Back Your Gold, She Is More To Be Pitied Than Censured, Ta-ra-ra-Boom-de-ay
