Ka Hia Manu : TTBB : Stephen Hatfield : Songbook : 48019909 : 884088281229

Stephen Hatfield : Ka Hia Manu

Ka Hia Manu (Little Birds) pulls together chants and texts from various Polynesian and Micronesian islands. A metallic, brassy edge to the sound sets this Stephen Hatfield original apart from much of the standard choral repertoire. Think of the spontaneity of kids singing on a bus. Think of hand-woven fabric rather than cashmere. Duration: ca. 6:45.

Three Tongan Legends : SATB : Carter Pann : Sheet Music : 312-41874

Carter Pann : Three Tongan Legends

Three Tongan Legends is a tour de force of exotic inventiveness! Pann not only wrote the story and choral text, he also created an original language with South Pacific flavor, to maximize the relationship between phonetic sonorities and the musical flow. The three movements are titled: I. Klaa Ma (song for the infinite sky), II. Kanokaa do! (a hunting song), and III. Dalle ma nabonu (song for the dead).

Tongo : TB : Greg Gilpin : Sheet Music : 00-43449 : 038081489896

Greg Gilpin : Tongo

Here's a traditional canoe song from Polynesia that sounds quite impressive with just two voice parts, handclaps, and percussion instruments. The echo format of Greg's well-designed arrangement suggests people communicating from canoe to canoe as they travel between islands.
