National Treasures — SAB

Liberate your choir from dependence on solfege and help them to move on to this next level of musicianship: sight-singing with words. This series is entitled National Treasures because it draws its texts from a variety of Americana. POETS: Frost, Dickinson, Sandburg, Longfellow, Thoreau, Emerson, Whitman, and Poe; HISTORICAL FIGURES: Jefferson, Franklin, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Wilson; and NATIONAL DOCUMENTS, such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. In the SAB version, the bass part is written in the Cambiata range, so it can be sung by tenors, baritones, and boys with changing voices. These compositions are short, yet musically satisfying and textually meaningful.
PLEASE NOTE: This series is not a substitute for systematic solfege training. It assumes a reasonable ability in solfege as a prerequisite. Completion of any of our other sight-singing series is more than adequate preparation.
