Music for vocal ensemble | 14 original and traditional scores
Easy to read scores with romanized and translated lyrics
This is an edition of the scores of the 14 compositions included in the album "Thread and Needle".
The scores have been written so that they are easy to read while conveying as much of what happens in the recording as possible. When writing a score, one has to decide which elements are vital and need to be put on paper and which can be modified by the performer without altering the character of the piece.
It is impossible for a score to describe with precision the reality of music making, for a sketch to encompass the miraculous act of singing. It is also impossible to sing the same song twice in the same way. Notes on paper serve as memory aids, as something to hold on to while whirling in the joy of music.
