Follow the Drinking Gourd

This lazy swing setting in 12/8 time is a history lesson in song for two-part choirs. With finger snaps and hushed dynamics (Shhhh!) to dramatize the importance of quiet stealth by escaping slaves, this is a fun way to learn the history of the underground railroad. The performance notes explain in detail the historical significance of this African-American slave song.

Shades of Green

“The beauty of the forest is in all its shades of green.” The forest is a metaphor for the world and the trees are its people. This nicely flowing orginal composition celebrates the beauty in diversity that makes a forest, and hence all people, something of distinct loveliness.  Use it to promote racial and social tolerance, environmental sensitivity and global understanding. Originally published in 2002 with a SAB setting, it was re-released in 2004 in 2-part treble.
