This is a great piece for your show choir or intermediate concert ensemble. Shadowland, written for the Broadway production of “The Lion King,” begins with a haunting text, which when translated means, “This land of our ancestors is holy.” The arrangement is written in c minor, rather unusual for a show choir piece, but it works very well. There is a great dramatic solo opportunity for your girls that lasts throughout the first half of the song with the rest of the ensemble singing underneath. Unfortunately an instrumental pak is not available for this arrangement, but it can be performed just as well with piano accompaniment.
