America the Beautiful

WALTON WW1517

A wonderful new arrangement for men's chorus of this classic patriotic song. The melody is accompanied by a rich piano part that changes throughout to reflect the spirit of the text - from flowing to marching to dramatic. The vocal writing is accessible yet thoughtful as the composer weaves the melody throughout to feature each voice part.

'Tis the Seraphim

PAVANE P1481

Kevin Memley's music is known for its beautiful melodies, captivating harmonies and originality. This a cappella piece for men's voices is a prayer of gratitude and praise. The “alleluias” that soar between the verses are gentle yet stunning. The general nature of the text will enable this piece to work in both church and school, high school and older.
