‘She’s Like a Swallow’ sung by The Tubthumping Chorus Conway Hall, London, 28 March 2017SHE'S LIKE THE SWALLOW FINAL 4 WEB - Full Score SECURE
A beautiful piece that has several key changes as the soprano, alto and tenor all sing a verse. Again worth learning over a few rehearsals.
An achingly beautiful folk song, the arrangement manages the essential trick with folk songs of being original but in no way contrived. A clever series of key changes allow 3 of the voice parts to take turns on the tune, all in a comfortable range.
The changes are unusual & not traditional of course, but feel surprisingly natural & really help to sustain interest over the 5 verses necessary to tell this dark tale of loss & abandonment. My choir loved singing this. Thankyou Gitika
