Composition Spotlight: Moon Man

COMPOSITION SPOTLIGHT ~ by Jack Senzig
 
(Each week we look at a piece of useful repertoire from the ChoralNet Community Composition Showcase.  A variety of voicings and levels of difficulty will be presented.  Enjoy!)
 
Moon Man by Greg Bartholomew SATB (or SA) a cappella (click for PDF and Audio)
Level: High School or higher
Uses: Winter/Holiday
Program Themes: Winter Holiday
This Piece Would Program Well With: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas arr. Harry Simeone JWpepper and Sheet Music Plus
 
Merry Christmas!  I'm sure most conductors have had just about enough of the standard holiday fare so I'd like to serve you up something quite different.  Moon Man has an unusual text that Greg Bartholomew adapted from a poem by American poet Tom Clarke.   This song will have you eating your Moon Man cheese in a tin for Christmas Day.  Enjoy!

Thanks, Jack!  The text is adapted from a poem by British poet Tom Clarke (he lives in Bristol, UK).

We are all waiting here in Seattle to see what the spaceman brings in on Christmas Day!
