A real barn burner! As much of a showcase for the pianist as the choir, and demands a player with near virtuostic technique and rhythmic assurance. Vocal parts are exciting and fun to sing. The text, adapted from Walt Whitman, is joyful and very humanistic. Range and tessitura are reasonable in all voices.
