SATB + Sop Solo, 4' (2016)
“Oh, Shenandoah” is a long-lived American folk song, originating among traders and travelers on the Missouri river and evolving into a sea shanty sung around the world. Many versions of the tune and lyrics exist, but all carry the same nostalgia. This arrangement uses an accompaniment solely made up of drones from the naturally-occurring harmonic series (with an exception here and there) to turn the sea shanty into an echo of longing across an ocean.
