I haven’t done this piece with a junior high/middle school group but a colleague of mine who I trust very much recommended this piece and after one look through the music, I feel confident recommending it to you. You need to have a number of settling baritone voices because the boys’ part has a range of almost an octave and does sing a D below middle C; the accompaniment is beautiful and also uses a violin or other C instrument; the text is very grown-up yet not “over their heads.”
