Call to Prayer

Music: David Iles (1978) - Words by Clara M. Brooks, (1914).

for 2 part choir with organ or piano accompaniment.


Performance Notes:
This piece is a flexible arrangement, scored for singers of up to three parts and organ or piano.
Parts 1. and 2. could be split by SA and TB or by different groups according to your choir.
This piece should start very softly and grow in dynamic until the final chorus when it should suddenly become soft again until the end.
There is an alternative organ part for Verse 4. If used the singers should sing the verse in unison with no refrain.
If you wish to vary the piece further it is also possible to alternate the groups for the verse and the refrain.
