Unison or Two-Part

This charming storytelling selection quotes generously from “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” and two seafaring tunes to convey the tale of Jonah’s misadventures. Melodies and ranges are very friendly, and this arrangement should be approached with a sense of humor. A fully orchestrated accompaniment is available on compact disc. There are opportunities for spoken solos, costuming and some creative staging.
