Build a Bridge (ASB #15)

Build a Bridge (ASB #15)


Build a Bridge is a collection of pieces composed by SfP tutor Stuart Overington and inspired by various musical traditions including spirituals, gospel and folk music. They are a celebration of music and its ability to bring people together, and are designed to be enjoyed by choirs of all abilities. The pieces are intended to be introduced and taught by rote; the use of music, however, may help reinforce the learning and speed up the process.

Whilst all the songs are written for SATB choir, many of the arrangements are flexible and can work for upper voice choirs or SAB ensembles. Also, in keeping with the aural traditions of gospel and spirituals, they may be rearranged in their structure without too much difficulty.
