This melody by James Gordon is so absolutely haunting, I knew it had to be set for MS voices. The original song is structured fairly predictably, so I varied the accompaniment and chord structure with most repetitions of each section to create some more interest. The slow rocking of the 3/4 time signature mimics the feel of a barge trudging through icy waters, and the Gordon's lyrics are deeply sad. The piece also features a unison refrain, which will give some wonderful teaching moments. Will premiere Oct 2015 as part of the inaugural Symposium on Singing and Song in Newfoundland, CA (Patrick K. Freer, conductor).
