For Men-TTBB: "All The Whiskey In Heaven"
Date: March 20, 2016
by Rich Campbell
text by American poet Charles Bernstein
TTBB a cappella men's choir, medium difficulty, duration app. 3:10.
From composer Rich Campbell:
When I first discovered Charles Bernstein’s beautiful poem, I knew immediately that I wanted to set it for men’s chorus. The poem expresses so much within a brief, 4-verse form. I set out to use harmony to color the text’s rich imagery while honoring the poem’s lyrical and repetitive nature in the melody. The surprising last verse opens up emotionally, and delivers a passionate message.
