Satb anthem about the earth
Date: December 26, 2012
I am trying to complete programming on a concert we're calling "Earth, Sea and Sky." There will be choral and orchestral pieces to represent each. So far our selections chorally include:
Water Night by Eric Whitacre (sea)
Lux Aeterna by Lauridsen - complete (sky)
Now I am seeking an "earth" piece, perhaps rhythmic and folk-based, perhaps Native American in origin or inspiration. SATB a cappella preferred. Obviously our references to earth sea and sky are quite general and metaphoric in nature, so anything suggesting the subject matter while maintaining the integrity of a very high-quality concert would be ideal.
All suggestions welcome.
