Animal SONG


(1-10:00) Youth Chorus (SA), Native American Flute, Rattle, Drum, Synth Piano, Bass. Copyright Fee: Score. Music and Lyrics Copyright 2013, Brent Michael Davids.


ANIMAL Song is designed to be easily sung by youth choruses and teaches the Oneida language by using various animal names. The choral work incoporates soloists at each verse, where one solo singer proceeds out in front of the chorus to perform an animal sound (imitate the animal call) corresponding to the animal of that specific verse before rejoining the chorus. The work can be sung with various durations depending on the number of animal names used (one through ten).
